"Aloe Aloe, What's All This Then?"

The clue is in the title, this is an aloe and in flower ( normally only seen as a rosette of succulent leaves close to the ground ). This one grows outside and is hardly tended, it is in concrete sink with some thrift, campanulla , sempervivium and mesembreanthiums - bit of a mixture I know. I just throw a bit of water on the sink when the weather is like it is now. Some of the pods has have burst and some of the seeds from the pod explosion have stuck on itself while others will have shot away and some day another aloe will say 'ello. Sorry if I might have got a few mis-spells back there- all written with no cross checking tonight.
