Oh, what a bummer. I can just imagine that enormous beautiful Agave in your garden.
Right?! So sad...
Oh bummer - too bad you couldn't bring it home. You have a lesson to learn from this, Loree. Next time, make it a road trip and bring your plant mobile. I have to ask - is the namesake of the Visitor Center the same James Roof whose name is on my favorite Garrya?
That's the one! (good eye)
Everyone knows you're on the lookout for Agaves. Too bad they didn't offer to ship it!
I can't imagine what that baby might have weighed...
Ask what Brown can do for you... I actually thought you had shipped it home :-) I like the small hypertufa (?) planter right behind the excavated agave; very charming.
Is that a UPS slogan? I've not heard it. Pretty funny.
I guess you'd have had to buy it its own plane seat. Maybe you should have tried the argument that it was your emotional support agave.
Oddly the only empty seat on the entire flight home was next to me. I wanted a window and ended up at the very back of the plane. I don't know if the guy sitting in the aisle seat would have appreciated the agave though.
Anna's right, your plant mobile should always be with you when you visit places like this! Sorry you missed out on this sweet agave. It's always amazing to me to see such a big agave with so few roots.
