Aloe comosa inflorescence with pinky-lilac oleander gouache.


  1. the magnificent aloe, again! :-)
    did i mention that my two tiny ones have also bloomed?!! now the inflorescence is fading, i will show it to you!
    but do you mean that this is really oleander?! isn't oleander too common a plant for a magician's garden? :-P

  2. I'm so jealous of your colorfully rich variety of flowers! I'm trying to coax some potted plants outside, but the desert sun is too much for many of them and I don't have a sprinkler system, just a hose and a watering can. I feel like we are brave allies in the battle for color. I think I will try an aloe. Maybe that is a good plant for these conditions. I do so wish I had your magic touch...
