Pondering on a pretty pest…

agapantha

Agapantha’s get a bad rap around here. It seems almost everyone hates them. They are considered (officially) a pest plant, an “environmental weed” and a lot of effort goes into removing them from many places. But they also seem to do a great job when mass planted of providing some lush greenery. They are salt tolerant and frequently found near the sea, such as this one was. They are very hardy.

Finding beauty in things that others think are pests…that is about having an open mind to seeking beauty all around us, even in unlikely places.
