Garden Art

We had a little fun yesterday, installing a gorgeous century plant flower into the garden.

The massive century plant dies after flowering.

Such impressive flowers

The stalk dries out quickly, within weeks.

It's nice to have big tools.

  1. Wow, this is so cool!

  2. Thought you and Bert might enjoy seeing how a Century Plant Flower was “repurposed”…I went to Art Center with Candi. She is an awesome painter who lives on an organic farm up in Santa Cruz with her husband, Paul. Alta

  3. Helen, I’m afraid this plant will not re-sprout. It’s simply an interesting shape and structure for the birds and our imaginations.

  4. Sweet little foto essay, Candi; feel like I traipsed thru the day with you & yours. Can’t wait to see the ornaments on that tree!

  5. Beautiful photo of the installed plant. I really did not understand……will it sprout a new plant?

  6. I’d hate to be the one who has to put the star on this tree!
