Wednesday Vignette Winter Solstice 2016

A pair of Beaucarnea recurvata create the shadows, with five Agave 'Ray Of Light' accenting their bases.  A blue foreground of Echeverias and Senecio mandraliscae, while in the distance, more Agaves, more Senecio, and Echinocactus grusonii.  Photographed this week at the Huntington Library and Botanic Gardens. 

Bonus shot, a neighbor's new Golden Retriever Puppy. 
You may now "Awwwwwwwww!"
