Flowerquest: Denny Park in the Rain

I always end up in Denny Park. Time and again, I find myself taking pictures for this blog, telling myself that I know I'm not in Belltown. But where else are there squirrels and some very nice greenery in the same place? Not in Belltown, that's for sure. Anyhow, two weeks ago, it happened to rain here. Strange how we've had so much sun that rain seems like a novelty or a welcome change of pace. It's almost like this year's incredibly dreary winter/early spring happened in some other city. So in the midst of this refreshing change in the weather, I went out walking, ending up in - you guessed it - Denny Park. The squirrels now recognize me and follow me around. They know that I'm their peanut connection. While being followed by squirrels, I noticed a really nice bit of bloomage. Here it is:

I don't know the name of this plant, but it's really nice. And perhaps you'll agree that it's even nice in the rain.

This is a Yucca, probably Yucca flaccida.
