parley view parsnip. . . aliens from outer space

Spring is here and going strong in Tucson.
In fact we are about half way through spring.
Anything that blooms has or will be blooming as much as it can,
before the heat of summer is upon us.
As I said last week my Century plant is going to bloom.
I swear it grows 6 inches a day.
I think it is an Space Alien !

talented Granddaughter always has a snack.
It can be anything, she is crazy about tomatoes and fruit
but today it was the biggest doughnut I have ever seen.

 Enjoy today and eat a doughnut if you can !

  1. That plant seems to be growing a mile a minute as we say here.
    I rather fancy a donut that size.

    1. hahahaha she is 4 but I think the way it is shot it looks even bigger.
      I am sure she shared it with Mum.
      The food in Japan is not as big as here in the U.S.

  3. We had a few of those silly century plants in La Quinta and one of them grew about 30 feet high before we decided to cut it down. After that we didn't tolerate them for long because cutting it down is a chore. Doughnut looking mighty yummy.

    1. I love my Century Plants. I had 2 huge ones. Living sculptures.
      Now I lost them both. So sad.

  4. It is an amazing plant, and stands out nicely against that terrain.

  5. Oh my goodness, it's growing like crazy! Maybe it's really a space alien trying to communicate with its buddy living outer space, or trying to go home in the other planet.
    Your granddaughter is very pretty as always! What an adorable picture of her eating big doughnut :-)

  6. I've never been able to eat donuts. They always burned the back of my tongue and on the way down. Lucky little granddaughter. Anyway, your green tower really looks alien like with the fog or were those clouds in the background?

    Hugs and chocolate!
