I gather from reading certain garden blogs that in some climates, the sun has vanished and will not return until next April or so. Some sun for the sun deprived, in the mean time. Rest assured, it's still up there.
Agave desmettiana continues to reach upwards and outwards...
...with Senecio vitalis glowing at its base.
'Blue Glow' is also glowing.
Tagetes lemonii is glowing, too.
Aloe maybe-marlothii is happy. The dark chocolate spines cast tiny pyramids of shadow.
The spines look sharp, but you can grab a leaf pretty firmly and it doesn't hurt--too much. Not nearly as nasty as Agave spines.
Here's the whole plant. It's done better this summer, now that it is large enough to avoid being completely swallowed up by the nearby Tagetes. Swallowed up, it sorely missed the sun.
