Zilker Neighborhood Gardens

Agaves in the snow

Since agaves are the native plant of the week, I’m sharing a photo array of agaves in the snow in Austin, Texas. These photos were taken by my husband between 9:00-10:00 am this morning. Agaves capture water with their curved leaves. Snow is captured there, too, and will travel to the base of the plant when the snow melts.
