Senecio talinoides

After several years in the garden, the plant is starting to flower. Stay tuned.

Aloe flower

After many years, our aloe has started to flower. I would have said it was an aloe vera, but according to SFGate, those flowers are yellow.

The plant has got rather large, and it is in a large clay pot, I think 16 inches in diameter. Here’s a picture that was taken earlier this year.

I think this is some sort of Sempervivum (like Hens and Chicks).
