Casa Magnolia, Wimberley, Texas
We have excitement at our house, both joyous and sad. One or our agaves flanking our entrance is blooming. The stalk is now 25 to 30 feet high. Now that it is in bloom, the hummingbirds are all over it. The sadness is the plant will die because it’s putting all of its stored energy into this stalk. And we will have a big hole by our entrance gate. Casa Magnolia, Wimberley, Texas
