Thanks! There's so many interesting winter blooming plants here in San Diego. Many of the spring blooming plants are blooming or starting to bloom now, too. :>)

Do Aloe thraskii grow there? It's one of my favorite and it's one of the larger growing ones (but not taller than Aloe bainesii [barberae]).
