A closeup of the flowers
The Agave is also called the century plant. The name century plant refers to the long time the plant takes to flower, although the number of years before flowering occurs depends on the vigor of the individual, the richness of the soil and the climate; during these years the plant is storing in its fleshy leaves the nourishment required for the effort of flowering.
Also during that walk, JoAnn found three objects that appear to be weapon cartridges of some sort, perhaps 'blank' cartridges.
I took some pics of them to send to a family member who is a former New York police officer. He might be able to tell me what they are just by looking at the picture.
Oh... and I also took a picture of the new Docker Boat Shoes that I bought via Amazon.com.
