Aloe trident

Aloes are amongst my favorite flowers, specially because they bloom in winter, so I'm always a bit sad at this time of the year when the flowers start to wilt and disappear.

  1. Stunning!
    On the plus side, summer is on its way for you lucky southerners, while in the northern hemisphere gloomy days lie ahead :-)

  2. Gorgeous! I'm sorry to miss these winter bloomers but do look forward to a summer in SA.

  3. I honestly can't say that these are in amongst my favourites, however, you have captured their "special" beauty so well! Such bright, beautiful colour - almost like a sunset!

  4. They do add so much colour to the otherwise dreary landscape. I saw species of aloe on my trip there which I have never seen before and was pleased to be able to add them to my identification website. Not only the aloes but a host of other winter flowering species as well. It was a great trip. Have to get back there for the summer to get more as well as the goggas. :)
