Agave Again

 We walked by the Agave plant the other day and was delighted by how much it had it had grown since I first photographed less than a month ago.

This is what it looked like at the end of May.

This is what it looked like Sunday morning, June 26th. 

It's gotten very, very tall. And now it has a lovely bud on top. We're so looking forward to it blooming.


This Agave has quite a presence. We love watching it grow... and it takes our mind off the absolutely crazy times we are living in, even for a brief moment.

  1. Don't know what I'd so without Mother Earth and Father Sky, along with music, to give my mind and heart and spirit refuge for all these years. I'm impressed by your neighborhood Agave's presence.

  2. It'll be a danger to air traffic if it gets much taller. Very impressive.

  3. I am so glad that strange plant can give you a bit of a respite from todays woes. That stem must be strong to grow so tall and not break. Hope you catch the blossom for us.

  7. We had one in the easement in front of our house when we lived in the city. It did eventually bloom. They die after they bloom but usually have sent out pups first.

  8. you realize that there is a giant living up there somewhere...
    Brief moments of forgetfulness are a blessing right now but then the shock and dismay and potential collapse of our home becomes obvious. - we can only ride this out and hope that the youth take the reins.

    1. Linda-- I hadn't thought about a giant living up there. Sounds right to me! Yes, the young need to take the reins, like those two young women singing that Fuck You song. Someone has to get us back on track... soon.
