"Spring" Flower


Under dark skies, loaded down with threatened snow, and dim and gloomy  as a ditch, one of the aloes is blooming. Do you suppose it saw its shadow?

Another uniquely Northview metaphor. Dang.
I'd not come up with that in a zillion years. Perfect.
Sure as heck no shadows here today.

I've grown aloes off and on for years and never had a bloom. Are mine snow and cold weather deprived?

Cathy, lol, it was nice out here too, later that day

Jan, I've had them bloom several times, but usually only in the summer when they are out on the porch.

TMM, lol, true
