Tree aloe with pollen collector

Aloe thraskii in bloom at the start of winter.

Thumb of 2018-12-26/Baja_Costero/f7e06e

The plant is shown here. It's a tree, with time. It has maybe a few inches of stem at this point.

I really like this banner. It illustrates how beautiful and useful succulents can be. Very nice! Thanks also for the link... Thumbs up
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

Terrific banner Baja!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank You! all for the kind words. I have found that if I snap enough pictures, I'll eventually get one with both the bee and the plant in focus (more or less).
