If anyone is interested. There is a Century Plant starting to bloom at the intersection of Hwy 50 and Hwy 229. This is not something you see every day.
Wow, that is really cool. Thanks for the picture!
OK, I had to look that up to see what a Century Plant was because I had never heard of it. It is actually a type of agave and apparently it sends up this tall spike near the end of its life.
