And one more coming in really close so you can see how the leaves of the stalk kind of wrap around each other...looking truly like an asparagus.... I will be documenting this wonderful flower-to-be as it continues to grow and amaze....it really does look like an asparagus and good enough to eat, don't you think....?
More To Come......
Glad to see you posting your collection again. Missed them for a awhile.
Cheers to your day!
As ever, those are great pics. It is lovely to watch this flower grow through your posts. Nature is amazing! Considering how big this flower stalk is, it does not surprise me that the plant dies afterwards. It must put all it's energy into this final act.
I always love your photo's in your garden.. if the "city" wasn't in the background you'd never think you were so close to it!
I have never seen aloes in bloom before, Naomi. I would not have guessed their blooms would be red - but I don't know why...LOL. Seems like they should be pink or lavender, for some reason. I look forward to seeing the progression of the agave blooms. So far, it really does look like asparagus.
Ahhhhhh shall I get the prosciutto and hollandaise sauce ready for the asparagus? Absolutely envious of your garden and your photography skills as well. Can't wait for spectacular flower show.
Agave? Is that not the tequila plant? It is beautiful. I have a aloe. It's tiny. Course with all this global warming I may be able to grow tropicals in a few years. Scary.
Shall I get the prosciutto & hollandaise sauce ready for the asparagus? Joking aside I cant wait for the flower show it will be spectacular as your photography.
The Star Trek of flowers and never snow.
On the one you said looks like asparagus...well ermmmm...I had to pull my head out of the gutter there because It looked like something else to me...baaaad cat...
Anyway what was I talking about?
Oh yes, the plant, I can't wait till it blooms I bet it will be spectacular.
Have a wonderful day!

I think my heart skipped a beat in anticipation when i saw there were plant photos! Yay!
I can't wait to watch it grow. :)
Do I need to say more than I'll stay tuned to follow this exciting devellopment. Thanks to your words and photos.
Very cool! Can I come spend the winter with you? It looks so sunny and warm. It was cold today and we had some flurries a little while ago.
I've been watching the news just a little today and see that there have been terrible fires in Malibu. I certainly hope you and your home are safe from these....
Those Santa Ana winds are horrible.
i thought it looked rather phallic.... sorry... gutter mind...
but i wanted to come over here and tell you that as soon as i heard the news of the fires, i immediately thought of you! i'm not even sure how close you are to them but i thought about you and hoped you were ok!
i know those houses were big and beautiful! i've walked down malibu beach... back in the day... beeeee----u-tiiii-ful there!
You have such a spectacular view. And your lovely flowers give the view a beautiful accent:-). Thank you for sharing..
Have a wonderful evening
Beautiful!!!! I am still waiting for my little flower to unfold, is it so much fun to do the follow up!
And today I am happy blogger is letting me comment. Not only that, I can access my blog, lol!
Have a happy day, OOLOH!!!
Beautiful pictures as usual. You can actually make a home and garden magazine with your beautiful pictures and descriptions
Gorgeous! I ask myself a lot, what am I doing living in Boston with the winter cold and all, when I could be living in paradise?
I am so envious of your beautiful garden...I love the photos of the city peering around the plants!
Amazing pictures Naomi! And the sky is so beautiful, is so blue! I agree with Deslily, so wonderful have the city so close to you!
Great photos, and such an unusual looking plant.
Very anxious to see the flowers that come forth.
Amazing how the plant dies after....nature is just so amazing.
Wonderful photos. The plant is so much like a beautiful sculpture, and its stem builds up the drama to the unfolding of the flower with such delicate intricacy. i can hardly wait to see a picture of the blossom - it will be a true AHA moment, this sighting!
I\'m anxous to see the flower!!
Lovely photos, as usual.
Suddenly, I\'m craving artichokes and asparagus. That plant reminds me of both of them.
I thought asparagus as soon as I saw the picture!! This is quite amazing. I enjoy watching as they grow and I'll be anxious to see the flower!
In the 3rd picture, the tree with orange leaves, are those changed orange for autumn? Or are they always orange? They're such a pretty color. And I love the orange of the aloe plants too. They're such a nice contrast with the cactus.
The agave flower is amazing. I can't wait to see it bloom. Regardless of how many pictures you take, I never tire of looking at them.
Ohhh....They are so lovely. Makes you feel like you're in paradise.
Thanks for passing by.
Ohhhh.... They're so lovely. Looks like you're in paradise.

Ohhhhhh boy! It's really gettin' up there now! I can't WAIT to see it DO IT'S THING!!!
