I remember reading of a gardener in the Los Angeles area who had a neighbor yell at her for planting Euphorbia in the front garden. How DARE she plant something that was so incredibly toxic where children might come in contact with it (never mind that those children had no business being in the gardener's front garden, since it wasn't their home). I wonder how that lady would feel about this hell-strip garden I found in North Hollywood?
With it's three monster Agaves waiting to impale an careless pedestrian.
Wait, did I say three? Well three monsters, plus three-hundred monster babies.
Who've had their arms amputated.
I watch with horror as the kids from up the street learn to ride their bikes down our sidewalk, towards my tiny Agaves. Can you even imagine what would happen if a face came into contact with these spikes? More than just an eye getting poked out I'm afraid.
Just for good measure there's a Euphorbia too!
I'm so jealous.
Look, the soft Agave gets pride of place where it won't scratch a car pulling into the driveway.
A quick reminder for those of you in the Portland area, hope you can make it to our sale tomorrow!
