evie and the agaves

I potted up some offsets from Agave desmettiana ‘Joe Hoak’ yesterday, and Pam’s focus on leaves the 16th of every month was all the occasion I needed to show off the proud agave mama and her pups. That Vanna White of cats, Evie, knows instinctively where the camera will be pointed. Rather than keep shoving her off the table, I relented. Evie and the agaves.

I think Evie prefers agaves to me scratching her cheeks now.

She’s got that vapid, showroom expression down pat, don’t you think?

    The cat is as beautiful as the plant. Evie and Joe. Long may they reign.

    (As of last Thursday, Roger’s had plenty of orange Drakensbergs.)

    Oooh, they do? Thanks, Hoov!

    Evie, tu es trop mignonne !!!

    Delphine, the little vamp knows what to do when a camera is around! (“Evie, you’re too cute!”)

  5. A cat who makes use of agaves, smart girl.

    I think Evie looks properly respectful. My 2 felines would probably try to chew the leaves despite the pointy tips.

    What a sweetie…but how dare she replace you with a plant!

    Evie is a super model..I hope Ein is appropriately respectful.

    Evie obviously knows a gorgeous plant when she sees it. I have a baby Joe Hoak that I’m enjoying — a passalong from a gardening friend.

    I have several pots of non-hardy for us agaves that must be brought in every fall. We learned the hard way that my wife’s cats like to chew on them. It took years for the damage to grow out. Now the agaves’s winter home is high out of the feline zone.
