I'd recently been in America and become involved in an "incident" with an Agave. Following been attacked by one of its barbs, my leg had been in a lot of pain for 24 hours. Locals said it happened, sometimes but when, on my return, the pain returned in many times its original measure I did the research.
Agaves have Bad Attitudes, when sensing an attack.
My friend had asked me to accompnay him in collecting Agave "babies" to give to his many friends (Now, I call him Doctor Doom) and I had gone too close.
I'd gone to the Internet, once I could drag my aching body to the chair, and discovered that they can produce arthritis-like symptoms (mine lasted for 8 days!) and also big blebby blisters that weep!!!
"Why?" I asked my aching body.
The answer came in this green haven where a large and rather smug Agave had its own legend.
They do this, because they can! If they sense you are an equally tough desert species, they'll do their best to get you.
Me? I'm one of the peaceful ones. It got me wrong!
But you have to laugh, don't you? Some folk are like that!
As for the Haven, that is waht it is, exactly. A rather wonderful and very serene sanctuary.
