No Longer Afraid

I was always intimidated by this Century Plant. It’s stayed in a pot for the past five years because I never really knew what to do with it. If I plant it in the yard, will a child brush past it and suffer a gaping wound that sends them to the hospital? Or worse, will the neighbors, on the late night trek home, suffer excruciating impalement and be found the next morning with a pained expression frozen on their faces?

No longer! Thanks to my dear friends in the Wisteria Circle, I can now face this frightening Agave with courage and determination. Armed with a generous supply of tiny googly eyes, I’m fighting back. Heck, I might even convince the kids to let me plant it in the playground. Thanks ladies. Now, does anyone know where I can find a Cholla Cactus?
