Blooming in Okinawa: The Aloe Vera Plants (Photos)

These aloe plants were spotted on Kouri-jima, Okinawa, Japan.

It was March 21, 2013 so, I guess these blossoms wait for Spring's official arrival.

We used to grow the stuff but, I can't remember ever seeing these yellow flowers.

If you get real close and look, the blossoms resemble miniature bananas.

 Unless you really know you aloe plants, you probably shouldn't eat them.

I like your blog and they really do look like little bananas... that's funny. You know, sometimes I put up a new post once or twice a month, but when I let months and months go by and I haven't even looked at my blog, I admit that I really do miss it. I see that you are on of the blogger's that post daily and my hat is off to you. I only wish I could think of something interesting to write about day after day... LoL. I guess I just don't have it in me.

Thank you. Folks like you who comment or yack back at me on the other social networks, is what keeps this blog going day, after day, after day. I checked your blog out and will have to add it to my Friend Feed. I'm not crazy about cleaning toilets, either. So, I got a garden hose to do it !
