Aloe Cactus Monday


I saw this aloe in a huge clump in a sort of abandoned area (sadly, in someones front yard)...with the pretty orange blooms popping up, and I thought of how sometimes we thrive in adversity! I was busy until after dark last night, but ran back to take a picture in the dark. It looks kinda neat after dark, don't you think?
Happy Cactus Monday to all my blog peeps!
xoxo- Julie

These were all over the place where I lived in CA! I called them firecracker plants even though I knew it was aloe ;)

HCM Julie!!

I have some of these in the back of our house and they just bloom and grow no matter if I step on them or what. Real survivors. Neat picture is right.

HCM!

PS, I'll be looking for all the hearts you will be getting into, maybe cactus hearts?

The Aloe flowers are stunning, they look like little torches. I love your succulent tires, each one looks like a different mini landscape.
