Blooming aloe vera

All these years of visiting the tropics, and I never knew aloe vera bloomed. But right there on my rooftop patio, flowers.
If a few days, the flower droops and gets flouncy tips on the succulent petal. Now that I am sensitize, I see blooming aloe vera everywhere. Especially in Sac Bajo. Who knew? Not me!

A few years ago, in rural northern Yucatan, I saw acres and acres of aloe vera in full bloom (sunshine yellow fields surrounded by traditional stone walls). It was quite beautiful there; flowers everywhere.
