rulebreaker not lawbreaker (maybe)
these giant agave plants are plentiful here in southern france. but they tend to grow on the edges of roads, stone walls, and hedgerows and as a result, get pretty banged up by tractors, people, and cars. this one, growing in a fenced-off abandoned garden on the outskirts of our village, has been left to grow undisturbed. i see only one scar on it. the full plant is a sculptural beauty. but i was only able to photograph it through the garden fence, and so caught only the tips. i am a rule breaker, not a lawbreaker. even so, i may, or may not, (or may) be working on my fence-jumping trespassing skills.
