a triffid!

I've got two huge elephant yuccas right out the front.  The other day I realised one of them was growing a triffid!
Look closer ... the one on the left...
Look at that puppy flower!  I wonder if the stress of removing the ficus trees set it flowering.  It's also sprouted a baby at the base, the first time I've seen them flower or grow pups.  I hope that doesn't mean it's going to die!  For now I'll just enjoy the unusual flower.
