I don’t know how long I’ve had this aloe–long enough to have repotted several times in successively roomier pots.

This is the first time it’s bloomed.

Cocoon 0

The milkweeds themselves are amazing. The caterpillars pick them bare–when they have eaten all the leaves, they start start eating the stems–and leaves come right back to feed the next brood.
