I'm totally in one right now and that's sort of alright even though I suspect it's only exercise endorphins that are standing between me and a bout of mild depression.
Should I be concerned? I can't decide. Lets look at some aloe photos. It's been a quite good year for the more difficult species with a long warm autumn inducing some nice flowering. This is Aloe fievetii from Madagascar, blooming for the second time. I blogged it a wee while back and it's been chugging along nicely. Got a branching inflorescence this time. Yay.
Aloe rupicola, as promised; the spike progresses and I am content.
This is an easy species for me, so it should be a doddle for everyone else. No idea why it's so hard to find.
Below- sassy old Aloe arborescens doing its lurid thing at the end of the driveway. They're particularly bright and uniform this year, perhaps due to the extra warmth and dearth of frost.
The Bellbirds love them.
This week will be more photacular than tentextual so you'll just have to reconstruct my spitting and raving from memory.
