What a wonderful image, Herman. Missed you yesterday. I did not know that you can grow aloe......I think of it as a plant from Hawaii. What color!

We have aloe everywhere here in Portugal, it must be the climate.

Ours are not quite out but you have given me inspiration (not copy cat inspiration Grin the kind that wants to do something else) and put them in the pic the colours are beautiful.

As I wipe the sleep from my eyes, who is that I see, yes, it is definitely Herman, all is well and I can start my day.

The only time I see these, they are in a jar and look like whipped cream, so pleased to see the original source and captured in such detail.
