A festive/Christmas plant

Hi All,
Thank you Chris.
How about a festive/Christmas plant- no Brussels sprouts :lol: , it can be because of the colouring of leaf/spines/flowers or decorations you have added, get that tinsel out.

It was a bit - that was during the BFTE when we had that big snow dump. Have to say the agave didn't turn a hair (tu) Then again it was a veteran of 09/10 and 10/11 winters that were nastier.

Ironically those lines on the leaves were mechanical damage caused by a polytunnel I had erected to protect nearby plants blew over and fell on it.
