Adapting to the Environment

If you plant an agave under the edge of a building, it will be difficult for those tall blooms to grow.  This one adapted to the circumstance.

Nature just has a way.

Looks like it is bending and shaping and growing right on up the building. Good shot!

That bent agave stalk looks like the way my neck feels after a long drive.

Great catch. I love how the plants continue under the building edge, but I probably wouldn't have thought about this happening either.

Plants are so fascinating! We could learn a lot from them.

Where there's a will, there's a way. We could learn something from a plant like this. Don't let anything stop you from reaching your goal!

It hold the heavy building on its fragile shoulders. Great find.

Good eye. Made me smile. And reminds me of Florida...anything you plant here will grow into a tree and take down whatever's in its way!
