The Aloe Vera grew in abundance in my friends garden/courtyard. He said its equal to a weed out there. So many huge tumblers full of the wonderful prickly stemless succulent plant. As my friend will be moving home in July I asked if I may have a wee rooting from his plants, he said of course. Not quite so hot as the Arabian desert but with a bit of luck & some TLC :) just maybe the wee cutting will take.
A week after our crazy schedules since our return, so many things to do, so many unexpected things to do too I've eventually remembered about this poor cutting stored in a moist piece of kitchen roll , wrapped in a plastic bag in the front zip of my suitcase :( Bless its little succulent Soul .
Here it is in all its glory in photos taken in Abu Dhabi.

Close up the flowers look as if they're made by tissue paper
Of course think its only right to add the Grand Mosque at night & day :) Not particularly good photo's taken from a moving car but the essence I think is still captured . Enjoy xXx
