That’s an all-too-common sky, until recently. I know, no pity for the other 85% of the time, or our temperatures at least 85% of the time.
Maybe it paid off, to dump my mop water at the base of this clump every couple weeks? Or a (finally) winter with decent moisture? Maybe combined it help develop this display.
The flopping over certainly hasn’t been from our spring winds. I think 2015 has been the most mellow for wind and sand storms I may have seen in 23 years, in the region known for free tooth cleanings many spring afternoons. While most of you are getting verdant…
It’s not like yuccas are lame, like bradford pears and russian sage are.
But seeing our everyday yuccas soar into the sky, then add flowers, helps take the blahs of ordinary from the high desert.
Does anything in the plant world do that same thing for you?
