Aloe Bloom (Late)

Who knew aloes produced such strange and wonderful flowers?

We used to have an aloe plant. That aloe plant made babies, and then those babies made babies, and soon we had a conservatory bursting with aloes. Then, they started making these wonderful, dangling orange flowers. Amazing.

Aloes produce the most wonderful flowers, and they start their bloom as these odd, pointy protuberances.

More gorgeous cherry blossoms.

I absolutely adored the blossoms our cherry tree provided – never mind we never got a single cherry out of it.
