Wednesday Vignette - Aloe Wickensii

Garish blooms of Aloe wickensii It was a bright winter afternoon when these pictures were taken (apologies for the blown out highlights) In this light the flowers appear too saturated with color... but that's just how they look. Very popular with the pollinators Broad leaves give A. wickensii the appearance of an agave. I'm glad this Aloe still seems happy in this pot after several years because I have no plans to move it.
