Aloe rubroviolacea is about to bloom

Seeing the first and only Aloe rubroviolacea I own bloom for the first time is kind of exciting ( though I realize maybe not for everyone else :) ) When I happen to notice an Aloe bloom first appearing it feels like receiving a surprise gift.   Aloe rubroviolacea (Arabian Aloe)   A handsome plant  This plant has been in the ground for about 18 - 24 months. Seems like most of the Aloes have needed to be in the ground (or larger pot) for at least a year until they are happy enough to bloom  Looking forward to seeing the flowers. Last year many Aloes bloomed late - this year I've noticed a few blooming early. I hope we are already at the beginning of Aloe bloom season!
