Those are Aloe plants. I can't tell you which one though.

Thank you, DaisyI.
It seems that A. vera is a candidate, but maybe there are many look alikes.

Looking at leaves and flowersAloe Maculata I believes, previously known as A Saponaria.

Definitely Aloes (Aloe) of some type but not Aloe Vera (Aloe vera) which has yellow blooms.

For comparison: Soap Aloe (Aloe maculata)

Thank you both, tofitropic and plantladylin, for your comments. Group hug
I agree that Aloe maculata is the one. Hurray!
Regards, I tip my hat to you.
