I was supposed to do a feature, on an embroidery exhibit at the local library. I must have had the date wrong since there was nothing there. So here it is mear minutes from a deadline, and I got nothing. It was then I started looking around and noticed some interesting (to me) plants. So here we are. I hope you find them interesting. If not, well, let’s hope next week is better.
I thought these agaves were lovely. These are at the entrance of a section named The Hills in Lakeway.
A different kind of agave with a backdrop of grasses and live oaks
This sign has a waterfall, some peacock orchids against a backdrop of live oaks and junipers.
Here is a shot of some typical live oaks.
On one corner are some beautiful artichoke agaves
Here is a full shot of the bed including a potted artichoke agave.
Here is the opposite corner with the same kind of agave display.
I thought this footbridge across the culvert was cute. This is a shot of Lakeway Boulevard looking North.
Here is Lakeway Boulevard looking South. I thought this stand of grass combined with the stark deciduous trees was a good photo op.
The tree in the grass is marked as are all the trees in Lakeway. In this way, records of trimming and health can be maintained.
I thought this live oak had personality given the twists and turns of its branches.
No pictures of plants in the neighborhood would be complete without a giant prickly pear cactus. So here it is.
I hope you weren’t bored out of your mind. Of course, if you were, you would not have gotten this far. So there is that for sure.
