Dried agave blossom~Today's Flowers 081510




I always enjoy walking in the morning up at the Santa Rosa Mountains Visitor Center. One morning, they had these agave blossoms leaning against a wall and I stopped to observe them. The agaves have already bloomed and there are many dried ones along our local mountains and highways. I took a close look at one of them. Isn't it interesting?

Blowers are beautiful even when they dried out.

Sometimes the dried versions of wildflowers are just as nice as the live blooms. Nice contrast here of dried plant material and stone.

It's very pretty! I love to eat agave syrup. Tastes a lot like honey.
