My entry for Paula’s black and white Sunday last week resulted in quite a few guesses, mostly snakeskin or some kind of wood. It was a close-up section of the trunk of this Mexican Grass Tree – a spectacular plant from north-eastern Mexico that, when mature, sports a foot wide trunk and a large sphere of long, stiff, square-edged, bluish-green leaves.
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling. View all posts by Heyjude

It was good in B&W, but works equally well in colour. Well done, Jude.
Regards as always, Pete. x
I just had to zoom in on the trunk, it’s remarkable!
Oh wow, Interesting plant. I wasn’t sure about the B&W but now I understand after Gilly’s comment. I zoomed in too. 🙂
Northeast Texas is relatively close to parts of Texas that have other Dasylirion species:
Like Pete, I like them both, Jude. They look good and and a nice pick for the challenge.
Thank you Dina 🙂
I think I was on the wood guess list! Thanks for the zoom out Jude. What fun to see the tree. Nature really is an amazing artist and you have the eye to find the art.
It does rather look like a snake skin.
I love the ‘bigger picture’. 🙂 Be nice to have a warm garden like that.
It’s very different to the usual Cornish gardens which is why I like it.
Hey, very cool! I like the close up, but glad you showed us the tree!
