A Royal Plant


The Queen Victoria Agave has to be my all time favorite agave plant.  With my love of patterns, the perfect symmetry of this plant is just too appealing to resist.  I took this photo looking straight down on the plant and then I gave it a black border to make it pop.  I think this one was even more perfect than most of them.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  You can see how my plans for the perfect photo in Brighton had to be put on hold for another time.
