They certainly do brighten a gray day. I saw them on my sidebar and came right over!

Wonderful, you just brightened a cold evening! I love aloes, have some arborensis, variegata and ferox, but my flowers never last that long.

Jacob said...

This would brighten up any color of day! Gorgeous!

Julie said...

Just delightful, Jose. I imagine just the one in a home garden would look under-whelming, but out in a park, mass-planted, they lift the soul.

Similar to the orange "red hot pokers" we see in old gardens here. Lovely shot.
