the annual celebration of soapweed yucca

It's my annual trespass: down a neighboring driveway to photograph the magnificent tall stems of the Soapweed Yucca (yucca elata, not yucca glauca).  I know I've written about its characteristics before, including the fact that it's supposed to cure dandruff; that it's edible (at least if you're a cow or a goat); that its leaves are used to make baskets.  Above all, it's just a startling sight - this must be seven or eight feet tall.
