Yesterday I took you on a visit to McMenamins Kalama Harbor Lodge and shared photos of a large Agave (and its pups) planted out in front of the lodge, along the Columbia river. Since those photos were taken last October—and we've had some real winter weather over the last few weeks—I stopped last weekend on our way back from Seattle to have a look...
Yay! It's being protected from the elements with a coat of needles. I've not seen this particular method used before, but I bet it's great at staying in place with the winds that whip through. According to Ryan, the McMenamins gardener for this location, the lowest temperature so far here has been 23F, and I assume they've gotten some snow too. Fingers crossed the worst is behind us and this beauty will live to enjoy the sun and warmer temperatures.
