Behold: The agave plant. Agave attenuata, to be exact … for there are many different kinds of agave plants. The one I generally am the most interested in is the agave tequilana plant. More precisely, I am most interested in the juice of the agave tequilana plant. Still more precisely, I am most interested in putting the juice of the agave tequilana plant in my belly … preferably combined with a good margarita mix and accompanied by some chips and salsa.
But I digress … for, as previously noted, the photo above is not of the agave tequilana plant.
This is another botanical beauty I shot during our recent visit to Longwood Gardens … and as I gazed down through the viewfinder on my camera whilst poised directly above this lovely specimen of agave attenuata, I thought to myself, “Self, this looks awfully familiar.”
Name that album cover, people. (Your prize is the satisfaction of knowing that you have a good memory and great taste in music.)
