It’s Manic!

 Remember the weird plant I had growing in my garden?

 

Well, turns out it’s a Yukka. It’s flowered this week….

 

I’m loving using my new camera! And I just LOVE this new one by The Manic Street Preachers

    Hey, you have some taste then (I love the manics)!

    That Yukka is beautiful, btw my garden needs weeding if you’re looking for something to do.

    yep that sure looks like a yucca to me! Funny that it grows out there as you said you’re not in the desert! Guess they aren’t only desert plants!

    Wow! Yes these are amazing plants. We have a double one in our garden at the beach and when its in flower, a local botanical group come to look at it. They make the pilgrimage every year!

    Yep, it’s a Yucca. You can eat the flower petals in a salad (raw) and the roots are often used as a shampoo by the desert Native Americans. It’s also just beautiful to look at (gg).
