Agave Plant

Just down the road from my house is this huge agave plant. We've lived here almost 4 years and this year is the first time it did this! Looks like a giant asparagus spear! Took this picture on May 3.

The giant spear started putting out little feelers a couple days ago and I took this picture last night. Will definitely be keeping my eye on it. I looked up the plant in a reference book at library and it said "spiny green plant, sharp tips, blooms occasionally." Yeah, like every few years.

Thanks for stopping by.

Brett thinks that plant only flowers every 20 years! Well, I think it just looks weird. You will have to post a pic of it when it flowers.
