Orange Beauties


These gorgeous plants are near the southeast corner of West and South Streets.  If I identified them correctly, then they are a type of aloe vera plant. Interestingly, they ought not to be in bloom yet. In general, they bloom during summer, but can also burst forth in the right conditions. That goes to show how crazy our weather is and how our climate has been changing.

    1. The cool thing about aloe vera is that it's a healing plant.

  5. You probably know the Huntington Library (Grrdens) in Pasadena? I've seen them there, and they stand in the African and Australian Gardens. I've also seen them bloom there in winter months (maybe when it's warm enough?)
    Happy New Year to you!
