Flora Meet Fauna

File this under: Succulents in the News! Came across this paparazzi shot taken early this morning in Los Angeles of a great variegated agave. We’ve got a few of this type at the Rancho and I really love the sinuous way the leaves grow, as well as the blue/green + yellow color combination. They’re that perfect natural combo of the beautiful mixed with the dangerous (look at those sharp spines edging the leaves!); so you mess with them at your own peril. Oh. In the foreground? That’s Lindsay Lohan. Tequila shots, anyone?

Note: Despite this post, I promise RR won’t sink into some celebutante morass. This is a one-time deal. However, if the young and vapid start toting succulents around in their overpriced designer handbags, and wearing cacti on their heads, all bets are off.

    Yuck, that poor agave is not long for this world after commingling with Lohan’s liquid assets!
