To those who love agave

These are not mine, but they were growing by the side of a road. They seem to be quite happy there; there are even a few pups…

Sorry that I’ve change direction with colours with this final photo. I found these flowers at breakfast this morning. I wonder if these are Sedum Autumn Joy blooms… what do you think?

I thought the last photo was of brocolli heads, at first glance! LOL. I don't know much about sedum since it won't grow here...
The rest of your balcony plants look fantabulous!!!

I am always amazed at what you have growing on your balcony...so much variety and beauty. I love the Agave americana 'variegata' growing by the roadside.

Not fair, not fair. Those looked so healthy and pretty. I wash my hands with them,lol, since the ones I've seen around here looked so bad. Your succulents are very happy.

I love how you mix your different succulents. The aeoenium produces flowers and I think I have seen them in the greenhouse.

Thanks for your lovely photos!

I believe the plant with small leaves in the first photo is Pilea.
