The Frustrated Gardener shows you the heartbreak of the Agave bloom. It may not have actually broken the glass on its way out, but close enough!
A specimen of Agave americana, moved from a nearby properly about 40 years ago, has formed an enormous 30ft tall flower spike which is now blossoming. This has necessitated the removal of a handful of glass panes to allow the enormous stalk through, so as not to damage the rest of the historic structure. The result is quite breathtaking and has been drawing crowds from near and far.
Drawing crowds! From all over the Isles I am sure.
