great shot of it Rob, eerie looking thing it is
Isn’t it just Mick! I’d not seen an Agave flower had in all the years I’ve grown them, and on my travels yesterday, I spotted this. The lead shot reminds me of something, but I’ll be blowed if I can think of what it is! Thanks my friend!
Great macro shot!
Hello Svetlana, and thank you. This stalk was roughly 8 foot tall, coming from the centre of the Agave.
WoW Magee, great shot of, what ever you called it. Kinda pretty in it’s own little way. Is it in the cacti or suculent family?
Howdy John!! Thanks my friend! It’s kinda cool hey? It’s an Agave attenuata, and they are classed as a succulent. They’re used heaps in landscaping all over the place up here. I have dozens of them. They throw pups, so once you have one, you will always have more. There’s a no fuss thing, and brilliant for landscaping, or just growing in a pot.
neat plant, rob – not sure i’d want this to be breeding in my yard! I especially like this third one down – it looks as if there’s a little flurry of activity happening at the base. Great to see you back!
There IS Nadine!! It’s such a complex looking structure that stalk!! All those twists and turns!! Silly me forgot to stand back and take a shot of the entire thing! I’ll venture down there tomorrow and do just that! Back only briefly my friend. I’m moving house, and my time is so restricted on the bubble till I’m all done. Didn’t realize I had so much ……..STUFF!! :-/
wow interesting plant, great title, great capture.
Have you ever seen them flower like this before Jenny? I’ve grown them for years, but mine have never done this! I was blown away when I stumbled upon this one a few door down. Fascinating thing!! The stalk from it’s centre is about 8 foot high!
no my agave’s are just youngsters, think this is a grown ups flower!
Mine I’ve had in the ground and in pots for 8 years or more Jenny! Maybe I don’t give them enough attention!! lolol!
They certainly are amazing! All the best with your move! x :o)
Couldn’t spare a few days could you Marilyn? lolol! Thank you my friend!!
Well you’ve done it again Luv, one more jawdropping series, I’m running out of bandaids for patching up my chin where it hits the floor!
Did you get your computer set back to the proper scale?
Thanks JD! xxNo I didn’t!! That ‘scale’ thing in the bottom right hand corner isn’t there. All I have is my time, and systems tray, but nothing else. :-/
in your tools bar at the top do you have a “view” tab? if you do, inside should be a “Zoom” tab and inside that should be settings to resize your screen.
I was feeling rather hopeful there for a minute, but alas, no zoom thingi!! :-/I’m taking a shot of my screen to show you okay? Give me a minute hun.
