I really like these agave blooms. In fact, I got a similar picture last year but at the gas station of all places!

Fabulous. I have a giant false agave in my Florida yard, but it went in last year so I don't know if it flowers like this. That would be great if it did.

I don't recall ever seeing the blooms before. Thanks for that.

I don't know if I have never seen these or just not paid attention to them, but I like them a lot!

Beautiful! One of my aloes(*) is blooming for the first time, I'm just waiting for the little yellow flowers to open to take some shots.

(*)Actually I'm not quite sure it's an aloe, maybe a small spiny agave... I don't know.
