A Tumtum tree, good for resting by.

"Jabberwocky"

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

from Through the Looking-Glass, and
What Alice Found There
(1871)

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Weird. When the wife sent me the pic, I thought it was the agave and a tree behind it. I didn't realize they were one and the same.

The flowers appear to be open. I'd imagine those would attract hummingbirds. Do they smell during the day, at night, or some other time? I ask because I've never seen an Agave with flowers so close to the ground.



Lie to me if you must, but don't lie to me and insult my intelligence in the same sentence.

I'm somewhat intrigued by the bottle of Frank's Louisiana Hot Sauce in the blue planter/bucket to the right of the agave...

You don't keep your hot sauce in with your Petunias and Sweet Tater vines?

No, but I imagine there are many possible emergency situations that require a handy hot sauce!
Gardening is not at all for the faint-hearted!
