Agave americana

Alcatraz Ave., near the Berkeley/Oakland border.

Looks like they left just enough space for this monster to grow full size before it impedes on the sidewalk and stabs a young bicyclist riding by.

Agave americana on Channing Way in Berkeley. In the sidewalk strip? That’ll outgrow that so fast! Hopefully there aren’t any kids riding bikes near there.

Wow that’s a lot of filtering going on in that photo of a mixed succulent terrarium with some sand design action too. In case you were wondering, I overused Snapseed in that there photo. Enjoy!


Here’s a slightly less filtered photo of a Sarracenia minor. But only slightly less filtered! Shock.

Agave and Anigozanthos make for a nice drought-tolerant landscape. Colorful too!

This yellow Delosperma is on 4th Street in Berkeley.

OK, so it’s in front of the store. Which store you ask? How can you ask that?!? It’s Cactus Jungle!

If you follow me on the instagrams you might see this same picture, but filtered. Very filtered.
