Did you know once the Agave plant blooms, it’s lifecycle is over? I did not know this until my walking companion mentioned it.
As morbid as it sounds this plant blooms only once in a lifetime and that could be 10, 20, 50 … years. There’s apparently no telling.
Then after it blooms the plant will die. Fatalism in agave was not known to me until we marveled at this. Then learning that it’s over after this glorious season for this fleeting beauty.
Another fun fact – Agave, not any agave but BLUE AGAVE is what Tequila is made from 🙂 Mezcal, otherwise.
