Jardin Exotique - the Hanging Flower


Everywhere you look in the gardens, there is a view. Here we see part of Fontvieille, which is the part of Monaco reclaimed from the sea and ot the right, the port of Cap d'Ail. We'll see a clear shot of this another day but how about this amazing flower? It's Agave Attenuata and tomorrow, it will be 'ready for my close-up, Mr. De Mille.'

There are a pair of these flowers nearby and I have been meaning to photograph them. But mercy, mercy... they don't have the view of yours. What a shot!

That's a flower? Another amazing curiosity from mother nature!

This flower looks like it is saying "I enjoy the view from up here in the garden, but I want to go down and join all the beautiful people who are having fun in the city and are frolicking by the sea."

Or a viperine maybe? If it is, it'll turn blue.

I think that flower definitely qualifies as exotic. And perhaps a little phallic as well.
