Wow,they are huge. Almost seems like you would get stuck by one if sitting on the bench.

I always like your photos of prickly spikey plants.

They look like they will eat the benches! :)

A nice shaded spot! Where I work, they have quite of few of these large agave plants growing in a sub-level garden. I look down on them from the walkway above and I always think they have such a nice symmetrical shape from above.

Like the agave and the benches, thanks!

I'm not sure I'd dare sit on that bench with those spiny agave plants behind me! ;-)

Isn't tequila made from agave?

Nice shady shot!

Nice repetition and pattern! That's funny, I keep trying to photograph agave here, but I haven't found my picture yet!

Be careful where you sit.

Aren't they beautiful. I love Agave. I wish they grew better here. It is just to wet in the winter. I had an Agave parryi--they do ok here but don't like their feet wet and it just got too wet one winter but I did have it for several years and it seemed to do ok. They are very fiercely spined. thanks for showing these. MB
