when aloe vera blooms...

awesome california fact: flowers continue to bloom throughout the "winter". cacti and other succulents tend to be the stars of the show this season, hence the popularity of christmas cacti. on my recent trip out west i was blown away by the aloe vera with their huge, bright orange, cone-like flowers. the contrast of orange blooms against a blue sky was a much appreciated change of scenery for a snowed-in, east coast resident, like myself.
