À propos of not much

 

Of all the plants in Prelude, two and three dimensional, real and imaginary, the aloe may play one of the more significant roles. I thought it might be nice to have a picture of one near by.

I assume this is an aloe that’s getting its once-every-hundred-year bloom, though I have a feeling Linda Burnell might be making that up.

Later, if we talk about Bliss, and I hope we can fit it in, it might also be nice to have a picture of a pear tree in mind, too:

  1. Aloe and Agave look very similar. They are both succulents that have pointed, fleshy leaves with spines. But Aloes flowers frequently. But Agave’s only bloom once in their lifetime and die shortly after. They can live up to 100 years. For this reason, the agave has a nickname of the “century plant”–but most live only to ca. 25 years.
