I had to clean up the snow from my chilled aloes, no way they are flowering now, I think...

I can tell you love these spiky plants ... they amaze me with the variety of their blooms.

Beautiful photos. I can't imagine something blooming in December, I've never lived anywhere like that.

these are just beautiful. i've seen the first one around here, but not the second one. i wonder if they grow around these parts.

Both desert delights are great, but the first is so appropriate for this festive season. ;-)

Amazing JM. Well Yucca blooms here but not the others unless in a conservatory. Does the Agave die after blooming? Love 'em all. MB

Lois said...

Those pictures certainly make me feel warm!
