My aloe vera usually blooms in February down here in zone 10. This winter had been unusually mild, so the aloe and peach tree are just finishing up their bloom.
Aloe vera blooms. The plant is potted on the hot patio and gets only infrequent rain. Despite those conditions, it still blooms.
The white bird of paradise is just huge these days. Too bad the blooms are always so sappy. I would love to bring them into the house.
These photos were taken with my new Cannon 60D camera fitted with a 18-135 cannon lens. I'm so happy about the new camera. Lemme know if you want a good deal on my lightly used Canon Rebel XTI. Better yet, bid on it on eBay here.
