Agave

I like flowering agaves - these ones are strictly speaking beyond the blossoming stage but I still love their graceful shape:




Visit Today's Flowers hosted by Luiz, Denise, Laerte and Valkyrien for more blossoms and Scenic Sunday for gorgeous scenery.

Beautiful, even if they are not in flower. This photo reminds me of the Mediterranean coast. Whereever it is, the scene is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your photo.

What a nice picture..the sky, water and Agave tree.
This must be a very hardy Agave species?
Thank you for sharing!

Are these pictures from England? This agave photo is beautiful, but where was it taken? Quernsey or one of the Channel islands? Forgive me my curiosity!

I've never seen those before. Very prehistoric-looking.

This scene reminds me so much of Cape Reinga at the northern tip of New Zealand.
I like them too, they have something architectural about them.
