Yuccas in bloom

The yuccas are blooming in the Santa Monicas, fewer this spring than ever before. It's the drought, I think, four years now, and their numbers have shrunk from hundreds to dozens, at least in the hills around here.

I love the ivory white, the cascading shape, the filigree of green against the sky. At night the moths fly in to pollinate. Mountain magic.
