Fabulous, vibrant colours. The gardener in Spain insisted on planting Aloes there and I so glad that he did. The flowers are a delight.
Great color Colleen. I prefer the first. Your move good?

I love them. Red hot pokers we call them, or used to call them in Victoria. We have them here in Portugal too giving a lovely splash of colour against the green.

Stunning in close up images - I saw lots in Santorini but didn't try macro images.
Amazing what you see in close up images that you didn't notice before.
Safe journey home.
