Yucca in Bloom

I rarely get a photo of our Yucca in bloom before the deer eat off the flowers, but this time I was successful. I've kept this one sprayed with my deer repellent concoction - a mixture of egg, garlic and water - it is pretty rank stuff!

The day after I took this picture - the rain washed away the deer repellent and the blossoms were all eaten off!

I had no idea they flowered!

I only ever see then in little pots about 12 inches high!

I've never seen an adult Yucca before! The flowers are amazing!

That is what happens when you live in the Southern Hemisphere! grrrrr!

Thank you for showing me something really really new to me!
