This beautiful aloe – the first I have seen blooming here – is a taste of the autumnal treat that we look forward to.

These beautifully rich, warm colours will delight us – as well as birds and insects – throughout winter. The aloes in my garden are pushing up their closed spikes, but this one, growing in the full sun next to the road leading into town, is magnificent.

These flowers fill my heart with joy as I anticipate more to flower all over the country!
