Agave - near the East Gate

The Agave is one of the 'draw-me' succulents,a graphically alluring cocktail of colour and form - not that I am attracted to cocktails, especially those tequila based ones which Agaves are so famous for providing the makings of.  The right-hand spiralling lealf form, lying fairly close the ground, with those sharp-edged teeth put me in mind of a galaxy, spinning out from the central point where - well, how do galaxies get going?
