Yucca Progress

Just for Easter, here are the yucca blooms the day before Good Friday.

From left to right you have the triple whammy, size matters, and double whammy. Scroll down to earlier posts on this topic for explanations of the names, if desired.

Triple whammy on the left and size matters on the right, from a different angle. These are the most developed blooms of the group.

The white individual flowers open starting at the bottom of the bloom. By the time the top flowers are open, the bottom ones have begun to fall off. The whole show, from the first bottom flower opening to the last top one turning brown and dropping off is about three weeks.

They're sure pretty after about one week, though!
(No golf today. Where we're staying in Kerrville the high is in the mid 30s today with rain and sleet. Yeah, we're wimps!)

I'm gonna have to get me some of those yuccas...they're cool. BTW, it was snowing here today. Nothing like a little Easter cool spell.

Your yuccas are lovely. I heard it was snowing in Dallas today.

Very impressive.

Sucks about the weather. We have had highs in the 60's (and think that's chilly) but beautiful sunny days.
