A Braehead man was astonished this week when his 12-year old yucca plant began flowering.

Terry Donnelly was told by friends this is a rare sight for a UK yucca so he began documenting its progress. The yucca plant is native to hot, dry climates so our recent weather could explain the sudden flowering.
