    Thanks, Dado. Perspective is hard to gain from a photo. Your discretion re sunporch activities is admirable

    Today, all the blossoms had fallen from the spike.

    The flower spike was removed, and the aloe vera was potted in some new soil, out on the deck. Eight "babies" were separated from the mother plant and given starter pots of their own.

    "Octuplets"!

    Octuplets! So what does that make you? A new grandad?

    We had neighbors. When they moved away three years ago, they gave us an aloe vera. Now the aloe has multiplied (octuplets). I would bet we can find homes for the eight baby aloes by the end of August. Full-bore cycle of life.

    Also, the Empty Nester may look kinda like a spent force tonight, but as The Song of Mehitabel goes: "there's a dance in the old dame yet."
