Maybe you've seen it on the succulent forum... in any case, great flowers on this aloe, unusual shaped raceme. Thumbs up

A terrific banner! Nicely sliced out of the original photo, incorporating the leaves and bloom. It always amazes me how out of a desert landscape, such beauty develops. Nature certainly is miraculous. (and the photographer is pretty good too)

Incredible 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.

Interesting posture on the bloom and I love the riot of color in the full size photo as well. Very nice! 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.

Thank you all for the kind words. Smiling That little inflorescence was the reason I got the aloe, and it fit perfectly into the sideways geometry of the banner.
