Red Yucca

DCF 1.0

This picture was for Texture Tuesday, which I missed. The theme was “three” so there are three dried seed pods of the red yucca – one of my favorite plants and these are the green pods…

and the plant…

 

DCF 1.0

A bit scraggly but charming! When we water, the birds stop by for a bath and a drink and they love the seeds from the open pods so I don’t trim it. Any plant that’s so happy in Arizona’s freezing winters and record heat deserves appreciation.

I especially like the neutral tones of the first image. I also scrolled back to see a few other texture posts. Love the blues in the mine shot! An image looking down the mine shaft is scary enough, I can't even imagine how really scary it would be to be there in person!

I have yet to participate in texture tuesday as I am so slammed at my corporate job these days. It's not getting any better with huge staffing cuts that continue to go on. I gave sweet Kota a pet for you, he loves to receive blog love. Hope all is well with you and those you love. Sea Witch
