An Agave in the Sun

We have been so busy these last few weeks I have hardly had time to take many photos but when walking by these yesterday, I had to grab my camera and take a shot.  I thought this was just too pretty not to post.  The Blue Glow Agave's are so interesting to me- I love them the most when they are backlit by the sun.  It was 77 degrees today, 75 yesterday with a little rain.  Texas weather.  What else can I say?  Gotta love it.  If you don't, as they say, stick around, it will change. 
Short but sweet post.  Hope you enjoy.
And for those of you that ask what do we do as growers do in the winter?
Lots and lots of this.....
Babies.  Lots and lots of babies.  My job, which I love, is taking care of all of them.
Potting, cutting, cutting back, moving things in and out, never a dull moment.
Happy February!


  1. I have blue glow and it is a wonderful agave. I love your photo with all of them together. That would be a sensational planting for a large landscape area if they were spaced out evenly and had a complimentary gravel in between each one.

  2. That is a gorgeous shot...I wouldn't have been able to walk by without capturing it either!

    Yay for all those babies who will need new homes!!

  3. Oh my goodness, that Blue Glow Agave is stunning!

  4. Those are beautiful!

    This weather has been pretty good, hasn't it...

  5. Beautiful agave! Great pic. I don't feel like it's winter here. I've been outside working in the garden on those nice days. There's always weeding to be done!
