To The Point

Although most of my gardens are on the flowery-pretty side, I do appreciate and use quite often dramatic sculptural plants such as agaves. I have dozens of green agaves and a number of blue agaves throughout the gardens. They are really quite lovely, although at times a bit malevolent looking.

These are two rarer forms of agaves.

I do take care to plant them away from areas where kids play, for obvious reasons.

Thorny, true, but like everything you do, gorgeous.

And, can we make some tequila from that?

We could!

I am completely unfamiliar with these plants. They are strangely beautiful.
