Not Aloe

Caption: Among the desert flowers near our vacation house. I'm a bit out of my element at identifying the flowers in this part of the country. These have wiry leaves instead of the fleshy ones aloes have.

OK, got it! Knowing about the leaves makes a difference. It's Red Yucca, Hesperaloe parviflora.

Right, Helen! I do like to know the names of things; it makes me feel like I "own" them, but I can still enjoy them even without. Some time I will find the right names for these things.

Yes, it's true. If we had no names for things, they would still be as beautiful. What did old William Shakesphere say about names? "What's in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Thanks for sharing, Kathy!

Thanks for commenting, Helen! I didn't bring my desert flower books with me. Bothers me not to know, but I can just enjoy them anyway.

Another pretty one. I have no clue, other than cactus, about desert flowers or plants. A nice change-up from what we see on the East coast though.
