"From the Vault..."

...comes the reappearance
of this funky and stylized color drenched aloe plant...
just in time
to soothe the away "OUCH!" from those
summer sunburned shoulders!
Ahhhh!
Happy Cactus Monday all...
may your day be filled with lots of feel good moments!
:)

and haven't gotten anything except poison ivy
and sunburn...
you're still better off than the worm!"

Oooh! my favourite colours and in a lovely aloe plant. Like to spread this sap onto any bit of sunburn I could find here in cool, windy, cloudy England!! Love the worm quotation.
