43/365 Smelling like yuccas

I'm sure the name "yucca" is derived from Latin or Greek, meaning something lovely, but nevertheless, I can't help but think, "What an unfortunate name." Unfortunate, to be named something that sounds like a rejection of food or reaction to something smelly: "Yuck."

I suppose that's probably why we liken things to "smelling like roses" instead of "smelling like yuccas."

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/250s, f/5.6 at ISO 100 at about 6:00 p.m.
