Aloes Waking Up

Aloe arborescens, (yellow flowered form):

The Aloes are starting to send out their flower scapes.  This is a major winter food source for the hummingbirds who live in our neighborhood year-round.

Supposedly A. cameronii, though I'm not sure:

I have the feeling A. plicatilis might bloom this year, for the first time.  It looks a little fat and crowded in the middle where the new leaves emerge.

Also the October rainfall coaxed a flower stem out of an Iris.  Surprise!

Right now, however, the Tagetes lemonii (Copper Canyon Daisy) has a firm grip on every one's attention (well...mine, anyway).
