263/365: yucca filamentosa

There are a few plants that flourish in our north country winters that would appear to have NO BUSINESS living here. The yucca is one.

Somehow, growing this plant in my garden makes me feel like there’s something a little exotic going on right in my own front yard. I’m happy to host this denizen of the desert and other southern climes and truly impressed with its survival skills.
