Here we are, back at Aloes in Wonderland. Off in the distance is the Pacific Ocean.
And everywhere you look are spiky plants...
And everything else that makes my heart beat faster, like agaves!
Oh, and a lot of cycads.
I had to pause every few feet to take in the view.
While also remembering to stop and admire the plants individually.
The fingers of this aloe were so solid and a little rough.
I suddenly had a strange urge to grab a badminton racket.
Lots of folks were going all giddy over the brachychiton.
While I preferred the agaves and the Aloe dichotoma (I think that's what they are?)
This guy was a monster, I think Gerhard identified it as Agave salmiana.
In retrospect I should have placed my iPhone there for scale, but you get the idea.
I had to wonder if this cycad was planted here, or planted itself—so close to the tree!
Okay, almost back up at the house.
Just a few final photos to wrap up this amazing visit.
The markings on some Agave franzosinii are quite remarkable.
I took this photo as Gerhard I were shopping out of the back of a pick-up, as I mentioned here. And with that we end our visit to Aloes in Wonderland.
