What fantastic colours, both in the flowers themselves as well as in the background. Love the way you have the flowers arranged in descending height across the picture. Everything is so beautifully balanced in your composition.

They remind me of the aloes growing wild in South Africa where I grew up. Ann

The UK know kniphofia as a red hot poker, Pamela, and it has different leaves to the aloe. We also have the bloom above here in Crete.

It's not a red hot poker (knifophia), Pamela. The aloe is it's own species. We have an Aloe Vera in a pot inside which we break a leaf off occasionally to use the sap as a skin ointment. The colour is beautiful on your image.

A beautiful group of these vivid blooms, and I do like the b/g spectral tones: lovely bright floral image for a grey dull dreich day here.......well, it's well into the wee small hours, but it's still dreich.

Delightful image.

At our last chance hippie gardener's insistence, we have several Aloes in the garden in Spain. They are incredibly effective with burns and have several other magical healing properties.
