Garden Stalk Update

Thought you might just like to see what's happening with the agave in our garden, and it's mile high stalk!!

The stalk began flowering a week ago, and is continuing up the stem with fresh flowers opening each morning.  The flowers are a greenish white colour and the stamens are yellow - pretty nondescript actually, except for the number of them!

So here we are, with a visiting bee the bees are all extremely interested in our agave stalk!

This is a real close up of the flowers:-

Here I have stepped back two steps:-

Here I have stepped four steps back:-

 I will post pictures again, when the stalk is fully covered with flowers - some time next week that will probably  be!

Wonderful flower! It always amazes me that the bees can find where good food is!
