Fairy Wands

Agapanthus: from the Greek meaning flower of love.

This is one of the Agapanthus seed heads I removed
from the front garden today.

In bloom the Agapanthus has a single head (umbel)
made up of florets and buds:

The ones in our yard sit on stems (scapes) almost a metre long. So, after pruning the Aggies I had a total of 10 gigantic fairy wands with which I cast surreptitious wrong way go back spells on would be weeds.

My flashback to being eight years old lasted about 15 seconds.
I hope that will be enough to keep the weeds away.
