Oh sure…I see the pictures on your blogs! You Californians take clumps of blooming aloes for granted. Been there, done that, yawn. Well in these parts it is a rare sight indeed. Enough to stop me in my tracks, (yes even if they are only about to bloom, rather than actually blooming). Never mind that it was at the nursery. No that made it even better because they could all be mine! Eight “about to bloom” Aloe striatula, if only I had a hundred bucks burning a hole in my pocket. Instead I rushed home and looked to see if my Aloe striatula clump was following suit. No such luck. However the next day I noticed my next door neighbors had bought one. Yay! I’ll get to enjoy the bloom in their yard, that works.
