This Agave has seen better days .
Looks like there is some new planting to do !
The little boardwalk takes the stroller past the resting Kayaks and through the garden.
Some nice well-grown specimens; cacti and succulents thrive in this frost-free and relatively low rainfall climate.
As do South African and Australian cultivars.
The poodled-up trees are unfortunately Melaleucas that are headed back to allow the the balconies an unobstructed view. Since I was in fact on a balcony I selfishly mentally approved of this otherwise unacceptable pruning device.
On the inland side of the building , grasses , Salvias and Gaillardias provide another punch of color, I expect these are likely to bloom almost year round here.
While I was gone -3.5 days - all my weeds grew 10 feet. Or so it seemed.
