Aloes have captured my imagination for many years. Their fleshy, curveous leaves armed with rows of sharp thorns, overlap and support each other in an upward spiral and then in the colder months a flower in the shape of a candelabra in the brightest of orange create a nectar feast for insects & birds. Their ability to survive and thrive in often harsh & hostile terrain and their selfless giving in abundance to man & animal teaches me about life.
