Looks like a small tree, doesn't it? I like the colours fading into one another.

This will be especially nice when the buds open.

Looks like a Christmas tree.

Isn't it wonderful to see blooms?

All it takes here is some warmer temps and a little sun!

Is this a medicinal plant?

You're so lucky to have things in bloom outside! I can't wait till spring.

Lovely! The only aloe species blooming here now is the arborensis (it's everywhere) and will bloom again around next Christmas.
