Macro Month – Day 4 – Aloe Vera

A series of macro photos of our aloe vera from the garden, we were out walking in the neighbourhood a few months ago and found thrown on the road a couple of aloe vera plants which we picked up and took home and planted, they are thriving.

From My Garden – Day 8 – Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus trees are sort of a plague here in Ecuador, they grow really fast, require next to no water or care and strip all the healthy nutrients from the soil around them, but they smell really nice and we use them for a fence in the front garden along the road. This trunk is growing in another part of the garden, along the fence with one of our neighbours and is stripping it´s bark and there are cute curly bits.

From My Garden – Day 7 – Bud

This is the first in a series so we can follow the budding flower.

Out of nowhere suddenly this bud grew, ok, well we did plant this a few months ago but we thought it has died, so imagine our surprise when this popped up, we thought it is a Nardo (name in spanish) when we planted it, but we checked online and we decided it isn´t. so this is where we would like some help, Can anyone identify this bud, it is from a bulb, is is growing is sandy earth at high altitudes, 3000 masl.
