stellar agaves

The ancient Aztec riddle asked “What points its finger at the sky?” and the riddle’s answer is “the Maguey Thorn.”

Left-over plans from 2014:
So when I finally get around to making a Steller contribution featuring agaves, these are some of the AGO archival photos I’ll use:

(photos have to be vertical to work with Steller, and that’s as far as I’ve gotten so far in learning the app.)

  1. This is my kind of post. Biútiful. Do let us know when you’ve posted your Steller story.

    P.S. I love that Aztec saying. I’d never heard it before.

  2. And all unblemished-looking. The 2nd to last photo is so southern California showing what the rest of us cannot do! (our morning dusting of snow has now melted…)

    Beautiful photos! Thanks for the introduction to Stellar. I look forward to the story that weaves your agaves together.

  4. The agave story is one I never tire of.

    Well, it’s not “Colorblocked New Years Fingernails”, but it’s nice. 😉

    @Gerhard, I’ve got to load the app onto an iPad — using it on a phone is really awkward.
    @David, there’s plenty of blemished agaves around town — my own garden included!
    @Kris, aren’t agaves incredibly photogenic?
    @Loree, tequila, pulque, it’s such a big looong story that there will have to be some shortcuts taken with it 😉
    @Hoov, if only I had the instincts and know-how to cover what’s new in nails, the new year would be a more prosperous one!
