I had a little aloe on a kitchen window for years. Then one day it just shot up and needed to be be moved to my greenhouse.
This is a really nice aloe. My mom had a huge birds nest aloe, at least that’s what we called it. It draped over the edges of a 10-12” ceramic dish. I’ve never seen another like it since. Your aloe looks much like it only yours is perky, not lazy and spread out.

Our little garden project:
These are pictures of of some of the pretties that came with our recently bought 2acre cabin/retreat. It had some unbelievable treasures in its soil. The property had been vacant for 9-11 years when we bought it. Someone had obviously put a lot of effort into the landscaping at one time. But between the people who did the landscaping and our taking ownership someone used this 2acre property as a landfill. May things have not survived our cleaning up or transplanting of them. But the place now looks like it’s being cared for. Actually this is pretty much our “garden project”.

Here’s some of the “treasures” we found the spring we bought it.

This is what the property looked like before we were able to get much cleaned up. It’s pretty disgusting what people did to this place over the years.

We’ve owned it for three years now. There has been some nice progress made. Our property tax value has nearly tripled in the three years and we haven’t really done anything other than cut some dangerous trees down and clean up the trash. We have barely done anything in the old trailer house we are going to completely gut and remodel.View attachment 30327
