The flowering of agapanthus in Melbourne telegraphs to me the end of the school year and the approach of Christmas - one of my favourite times of the year. We have several purple and a couple of white ... all struck from the same big plant that was here when we bought the house and may date back to the 1950's. They are just starting to die off now.
Our vegetable patch which is looking healthy and producing loads of lebanese cucumber and zucchini. Beans are just starting, tomatoes are all green and there's quite a bit of rhubarb and herbs. We have finished picking apricots and Santa Rosa plums and are fighting the birds for the Satsuma (blood) plums.
