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)

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.
