This stately tower-o-possible pain was spotted just off Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles. Sure it's missing those long beautiful spikes, but there are still glochids. Don't let anyone tell you those aren't painful.
The Heineken 6-pack holder adds a little "Je ne sais quoi"...non?
Just next door I spotted this bunch of Agave goodness.
At home this would mean certain rot, we must keep mulch and leaf litter away from our succulents.
They've repeated the same plants enough to avoid the dreaded collectors look of onesies.
But yikes! Hopefully there was only one of these.
There has been a little Agave hacking going on, but since it's only on the sidewalk side I assume it's to keep passers-by safe?
At first I thought "how rare to see this Euphorbia planted out" (E. trigona f. rubra) then I realized, what do I know?
Wait what's that? Flamingos! The sign, if you're wondering, asks you to "please be respectful" and includes helpful drawings to let you know dogs are not welcome. So let's get this straight...flamingos are okay, dogs are not. Hardly seems fair.
The much seems to be swallowing a few of these lovely plants, like the baby barrel cactus on the right.
But the big picture is just so...wow!
So many Agaves...
And other good things...
Looks like some ivy creeping in though.
There were pieces of it growing up those trees on the far side.
I didn't let myself climb those stairs, although I was tempted.
This area seems to be an older planting.
I let myself climb the stairs on the left (above), they went up to an apartment building, it seemed less like trespassing.
Agaves and flamingos, who knew?
