Jude is having a garden photography challenge this year, and for January the theme is Winter Gardens.
I took the first photo at home a few days ago. I was surprised to see the young bud shooting out, it usually flowers from late April, and like many plants this year it’s confused.
It’s a Beschorneria yuccoides, a Mexican plant that’s been in the garden for about seven years and was a baby, below in 2009’s snow.
Snow doesn’t happen too often in Devon, buds don’t usually sprout on exotic Mexicans in January either!
