Phoneography: Aloe Aliens

It’s phoneography Monday with the theme nature, and I have brought some photos of aloe aliens to the challenge!

The park half a block from our house is full of things to photograph. This huge aloe plant has such character and really seems out of this world!


Here is the aloe as it looks from the path in the park. It's huge.

Here is the aloe as it looks from the path in the park. It’s almost an ecosystem in itself… the birds love it.

I can see where sci-fi writers and designers get their ideas for aliens… plants like the aloe, insects (too many to mention) and lizards! What do you think looks like something from another planet (besides your mate when he/she gets out of bed in the morning 😉 )?

As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.

    I was really surprised at how they grew… I didn’t identify it til I googled it at home. I thought it was yucca or something. but nope! It’s a version of aloe. Weird.

    I turned off one of my bells and whistles called Comment Luv. although it’s a fun thing to have, it must not work right with all browsers with my theme or something. I’d much rather have you be able to visit and comment easily than have comment luv. PLUS I would guess you weren’t the only one with problems, it’s just no one said anything.

    Thanks Dawn! I don’t know what’s going on with my like button. I kept trying things to fix it yesterday but nothing helped. Argh. Anyway, I appreciate you commenting!

    I never can “like” your photos – but I sure do like them. I love the notion of this plant as it’s own eco-system.

    Hello there it’s me again using internet explorer, though a little slower, yay I can not only see your website but comment too lol, so I wonder what that was. I know you turned something off? xxx I don’t want you to be missing out on something integral just so I can comment 😀

    Thank you Janet! It is pretty interesting… I wonder what kinds of critters it houses with all those old ‘fronds’. I noticed the like button situation but thought it was just me. I’m not sure what that’s about. I’ll explore it. Thank you for mentioning it.

    Only the tops of “like” button and gravatars of the few who were able to click it at some point show and I can’t get it to take my “like”, but consider it done. My favorites are the third and fourth. I think they have a pleasing composition and I like seeing the sections up close. But the plant must be quite imposing. Needless to say, aloe doesn’t grow outside in northern Illinois! 🙂

    I wish I knew what the heck is going on! Yuck! I’m so sorry. But I’d be happy to put it in for you. In fact I was about to go looking for it since I know you have never missed one yet! xxoxoxox
