More Golden Agave

I really wasn't kidding when I wrote in yesterday's blog post that the Mexican Golden Agave is quite tall.

Here's a photo of the plant that I photographed at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. I had the camera for yesterday's image trained on the yellow part of the blossom spike, right about where you can see sunlight.

Here's a LINK to learn more about this desert plant.

For those of you who have read this far, if you Google "Mexican golden agave," you will find lots of links to tequila since "golden" is often used to describe that particular "cultivar" of alcohol so common to the popular drink of, gee, what do we call it? Ah, the margarita!
