A Century Plant Stalk

Wendy referred to this as a miracle of nature. Quite a few century plants have shot up a nice stalks all around town. They occasionally get over 40' in height. We picked up this little one off the side of the road. Wendy has a plan to dry the stalk out and mount it beside our porch. It is impressive both how quickly these stalks go up and their strength.
