My hubby took our large aloe plant into his shed to protect it from frost. Now it has this huge spikey bloom emerging. Here are a couple of pictures.
The closeup of one of the blooms looks to be about to open, so I'll post a picture when and if it does spread open. The shed is pretty warm in the afternoon, as it get sun through the window on the west side. It thinks it's in a green house!
I'll look forward to an identity on the orange flower. It's Ash Wednesday already, with Easter just six weeks away. Have a blessed day.
