Re: Emergency room


I don't recall seeing any exactly like that. Everyone here seems to be
fascinated with plopping an Agave (the Century plant) in the middle of their
front yard. Lots of yuccas too. But that particular one didn't look
familiar. It is very cool. I am partial to spiky plants. I might have to
locate one. I can put it out by the road to deter children...........
