looks like a violet?
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

An interesting fruit crate label showing some blooming agave plants.  I was going to order one and put it in a pot but apparently they are only available for fall shipment.

This is a new one? They look old to me.

I think it's an old label.  Probably from the 1930s.  Why they show a desert plant and not a fruit is beyond me.  But I have always wanted an agave plant.  I think I'll order one come fall.

Don't they use that in cooking?

Yes.  Used as a sweetener and for the production of tequila plus many other uses.  But I'm glad you asked, Annie because I'm always mixing up agave plants with yucca plants.  My mistake.  The plant on the crate label is a yucca plant.  The base of the plants are similar but there is a distinct difference in flowers, though they both produce a leathery stalk that the flowers appear on top of.  It is the yucca plant that I am interested in growing.  I should have looked up this earlier entry in the EllGab garden thread.

Truth! Natives used it as a cleanser and to make string. Ethnobotany is the best.  :)

My Oenethera/Evening Primrose is blooming like crazy! All the hummingbird moths are out.  :)
