Watercolor of an agave by Debra Lee Baldwin, from her Succulents 2012 Watercolor calendar.
"The spikey plant in back is an agave called Variegated Caribbean Agave (Agave angustifolia marginata). At least that’s what I think it might be. The tag was very unhelpful, all it said was “variegated agave.” Anyway, the purple plant is echeveria ‘Perle Von Nurnberg.’ And the plant spilling over the side is ‘Burro’s Tail’ sedum."

Romanesco Broccoli- "The texture is more tender than cauliflower, making it suited to raw use as crudités. Romanesco broccoli has a milder flavor, more creamy and nutty, and less bitter, than conventional broccoli or cauliflower." I love the pattern of it...it actually is a fractal / Fibonacci number design!
Romanesco broccoli, or Roman cauliflower, is an edible flower of the species Brassica oleracea, and a variant form of cauliflower.
