Chris, Capture One software makes the difference. My part is simply to sit still with a whisky in my hand and press a button. :thumleft: :thumleft:

Interesting @dw1 , My Aloes did not flower on my Farm in Limpopo this Year. I asked my Wife Today whether it had to do with our Shitty Rainfall (we are down 30%) but in the Klein Karoo we are in the same Boat, what do you make of that?

Hi @Offshore I guess it does not only depend on the volume of rainfall but also the timing of it. Maybe even more so. We had a couple of reasonable downpours here just when the time came for flowers to start budding. Even in our garden every single Aloe is flowering which is also the first time for many a year. It might also be that after a serious drought such as what we had the last 4 years the plants produce more flowers when conditions are good. Nature has wonderful ways to ensure species survive.

YesI realise it is quite a tall one. I think there are a few here a that sort of size but they are inaccessible in the deeper kloofs

Even the other succulents are flowering much better than last year.  It is raining softly now. Just a sort of drizzle but at least it keeps the soil moist. Had 3 very hot days this week. Almost summers days.
