Citrus & Aloe


Citrus & Aloe
Originally uploaded by gardenwiseguy

This cluster of aloe flowers caught my eye while I was researching a garden for an article. I don't know the aloe species, but the background is a navel orange. Wonderful how these serendipitous moments arrive while I've got my camera and my wits about me.

Click the photo for more shots at my Flickr.com site.

Funny... Bek and I were just talking about we'd never seen an aloe in flower and -presto!- there's one right here!

Wonderful shot. I love those two colors together, at least in this photo. I doubt I'd combine the two in clothes!

This is actually the 2nd aloe in bloom post I've read today. Must be a winter CA thing.
