Thanks guys. As I like to say, agave leaves grow up in a group hug. Everything unfolds from there.

The reddish thorns are something I've never seen. Super cool banner baja
"My work is loving the world. Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird — equal seekers of sweetness. Here the clam deep in the speckled sand. Are my boots old? Is my coat torn? Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me keep my mind on what matters, which is my work which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished." — Mary Oliver, from Messenger

That's actually the least alive the plant ever is (photo taken end of October after months with almost no rain). For a more cheery color set, try this younger version of the same plant. When they're really cranking, the center spines are almost yellow.

Spectacular banner!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
