Yuccas on the mountain



There are a lot of old yucca blossoms up on the mountain and last weekend, I drove down my favorite dirt road to view some.  These three blossoms are last year's leftovers.  Like many other ones, they are still standing tall.  I see so many of them all along the highway.  Yucca plants have these blossoms and also the fibers that you see in the top photo.  I can't wait to see this year's blossoms!

  1. Russ took some photos of spent Yucca blossoms last time we were in Joshua Tree NP. I think they look interesting.

  3. I think the leftover old blossoms look pretty also. The last shot is my favorite, just beautiful.
