Unid and ID Aloe flowering for the first time

cactusmcharrisSeptember 7, 2012

Aloe vera flowering, apparently it can flower any time of the year . I need some hummers!

An unid one alsl flowering for the first time - flower pictures will be forthcoming.

A threat to lawnmowers everywhere, so I had to perform some total annihilation, not happy but practically

And ending all messages with a catpile can make furry-faced folk intolerably cute.

Jeff: I love the coloring on your NOID aloe. And the nest - wasps? That's too bad you had to destroy them. I'm not a huge fan of wasps myself (I much prefer bees), but I hate having to kill them off. A very lovely hive. I know humans who aren't half as egrerious.

Goodness, that's quite a (wasp?) nest! I love your aloe vera, despite one of the more "common" varieties (all I have is "common," so there's nothing wrong with that), it's still lovely to see in bloom (or in your case, budding). I might just have to kittnap your kitties. My dog would love having them around... she thinks she's a cat. :D

Nice kitties. Nice to have them walking around all the time.
And, while talking about kitties and aloes, sometimes having cats around can be bad. I have 16 cats (yeah, i know thats alot) and they just LOVE to kill anything flying around. They've caught several dozen june bugs (my favorite) and even KILLED two humming birds. I was devastated! I buried them both by their favorite aloe though.

Beautiful purple hues in that second Aloe. And the perfect catpile.

Fantastic paperwasp nest! Unfortunate but understandable that you had to wipe them out.
