Nice Hummingbird Perch

We enjoy these stately inflorescenses, in this case an Agave
tequilana, and tend to leave them up as long as they don't threaten to
fall over. Not only do they look cool, they make a great resting spot
for our hummingbirds. This species of agave produces hundreds of
plantlets on its stalk that will eventually drop to the ground and
start the process anew. CB
