Photo: Agave Sculpture in the Sky

Agave plants send up a tall stalk with seeds and flowers before they die.  This is the stalk of an agave in our yard silhouetted against the eastern sky on a day with thin clouds that caught the color of the sun setting in the West.

We have lots of agave plants in our yard.  In addition to dropping seeds, they sent out shoots that sprout new plants.  When on agave dies, there are often 5 or 6 small agave plants already growing in close proximity to the spot where the large agave died.  We often cut away the small plants and give them to friends to plant in their yards.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week I am showing another installment of photos from the bottom of the Grand Canyon taken during my recent raft trip through the Canyon.

This is gorgeous!

P.S. I liked your idea of having a spreadsheet for passwords, etc. My little sheet with all that info is getting pretty marked up these days!
