First leafing out for me. I wondered for awhile if it was even alive. Yes!

Nice!

It is funny, mine are all back to leaf-less now that it has gotten hot. We had our first full week of 100+ F here, topped out at 108F, going back down to high 90s, they say, on Monday, but then 114F later in the week - which is no fun no matter how you look at it, 108 I can sort of stand to be outside in and even work in as long as it is in the shade, 114 I just want to hide inside.

Most plants have developed the WTF look.
It is what it is!

Spotted this today at a nursery. Apparently these are grown on a lot in Yuma somewhere:

It's gonna look great in your yard!
Agave
"American aloe plant," 1797, from Greek Agaue, proper name in mythology (mother of Pentheus), from agauos "noble," perhaps from agasthai "wonder at".

If I spent that much on a plant, I'd end up living in a hotel somewhere while the divorce was pending. :shock:
