As you may already know I am away from home and in San Diego, but Sunday we are flying home. My photos were taken at the San Diego Botanical Garden in Encinitas, California. I was only able to identify three. Others you may be able to help me out.
Thanks to Kay and to Poetic Shutterbug, I now know this beautiful blue flower is called Agapanthus (The Blue Lily). If you click on their names I have provided a link that will take you directly to their blogs.
