Sad Specimen

Say hello to my very sad, single agapanthus in the front yard. When I planted a bunch of them in the back, there was one much larger and different than the others, and since I was planting them in a line to create a curved river bed shape, I decided to plant this one elsewhere. Unfortunately, I didn't think about the deer and the bunnies. They were very happy to see this Lily of the Nile, and ate it down to the nubbins within a week! But the agapanthus perservered and is blooming (albeit not particularly attractive!) in spite of its tough beginnings. I'm glad, because I find them to be beautiful, regal plants and I've got my fingers crossed for her!
