Very nice pics James, I think mine has got a bit more growing to do before it gets to flowering stage.

I'm at a loss as to which I find more impressive, James, that magnificent plant or the blue of your sky.

Both are a pleasure to view.

Even after living here for thirty five years, Al, I am still captivated by our intensely blue, cloudless, skies.
