Aloe Reitzii's flowering in Summer
{January/February 2012}

Its busy stations here at the Fourie household with all the final prep for {Doing Life's} debut at Hobby-X 2012.  My dear friends Michelle and Shelley are flying up bright and early Wednesday morning for 5 days to help me setup and man our stand for the days, 1-4 March.  Excitement is definitely in the air.
We usually associate aloe flowers with Winter here in South Africa.  But this lovely Aloe Reitzii variety flowers in the middle of summer.  At the moment all of them are starting to or are flowering in our garden.  Hard to believe that something so vibrant colour wise, can stem from a little brown knob.  Nature truly never ceases to amaze.






Appreciate all your visits and lovely comments here at {Doing Life}.  Will be chatting to you soon.
