C'est comme un feu d'artifices ... et je crois me souvenir que le parfum, aussi, allume mille étoiles.

Amazing! Truly beautiful.

I used to have a Agave parryi. I had it for several years. I never did grow much but was a handsome plant. It never bloomed and extremely cold winter is did not survive. MB

Glad you know your way around the wine store! We'll have a glass of vino someday and talk blogging!

I got rid of all my agaves because they were too big for my terrace and I was getting punctured all the time. Looking at this maybe it was a mistake...
