Flags of Fall

In past years, the blooms of the aloe plants have given off about six or seven blooms, total.  This year is a shock.  Blooms everywhere.  I've noticed that the aloe plants are multiplying also and starting to take over the main garden.

The whole thing is reminiscent of the plants in the Little Shop of  Horrors.  The thought of trimming and digging out some of these plants is a daunting thought. The edge of the plants are like sharp razors.

The butterflies, hummingbirds and bees LOVE these blooms.  For a total of about six weeks there is this show.

Then,  they are quickly followed by the poinsetta tree.  It, in one week, has started blooming.  So, the blooms for the holidays have begun.

This garden is truly a living environment.  With the flowers, the birds, the butterflies and add in a few cats and a squirrel, I have the Discovery Channel each time I go out there.

What a joy!

Flowers are seldom eaten but they sustain us none the less.
