  1. Those are Century Plants, American Aloe. The flower stem gets very large in mature plants, and the inner core can be used as tinder for flint & steel fire lighting.

  2. They are lovely in B&W but I really love the sight of them against a turquoise sea.

  11. Your cactus plants are so pretty. Many times I do not find them to be very attractive, but in this capture they are absolutely lovely. genie
