Aloe Vera, Salmon Rose / Aloe Vera, Rosa de Salmón

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

THE ALOE FLOWERS are opening from bottom to top on their stems and our back hall is aglow with golden hues. In its own way, it’s delicious, but not as delicious as the beautiful salmon and mango “rose” salad I had the other day at Mesón Salvador. (Click here for last year’s flowering aloes.)


LAS FLORES DE áloe se abren de abajo a arriba en sus tallos y nuestra sala trasera está iluminada con tonos dorados. A su manera, es delicioso, pero no tan delicioso como la hermosa ensalada de “rosa” de salmón y mango que comí el otro día en Mesón Salvador.

  1. WOW and WOW!
    Huge plants! And a different combination…..salmon and mango. Looks delicious.

    1. Jim,
      Our plants are outgrowing our apartment. I dread when that cactus hits the ceiling!

    1. David,
      The rose salad is excellent. And, of course, healthy. I’m now a saint.

  2. My gawd that Aloe is huge!!!!! And I adore the salad. Friday when in New York …again. I was at a eatery and now think of you two every place. Ill share it soon. It was in Soho.

    1. Mistress Borghese,
      The aloe planters started with three well space plants. They’ve multiplied and quadrupled in size! Thanks for thinking of us re NYC. Will be back in September.

  3. Pretty rose. You lost me at salmon 🙂 I have a plant in my back yard that grows something like that in the middle of it. It’s not an aloe. It has lush green leaves, or whatevers, instead of being a succulent. Elephant ears, maybe? It comes and goes year after year without us touching it. We bought the house sixteen years ago, and I still don’t know what that thing is called.

    1. Deedles,
      Send a photo of the plant when it grows this year. We can figure it out.

      1. Send a photo? Me? Surely you jest! From looking at pictures online I discovered it ain’t an elephant ear. It looks to me to be some form of philodendron. Doesn’t matter. It grows without getting any attention and it is purty, so it is the perfect plant for me. I hope the dogs don’t snack on it though.

      2. Deedles:
        It didn’t sound like an elephant ear but I guess WE’LL never know. Photos not in you job description?

      3. I miss my Vivitar 110 camera. Does that say something about my digital aptitude?

      4. Deedles: Oh my god! I remember those little things. I had a Kodak Instamatic in the ’60s. I wonder what I finally did with that. I also had a Polaroid in the ’60s! I would say cameras are easier now, but if you haven’t stayed up to date, it’s like science fiction. Do you use your phone camera? Jerry had his iPhone 8 Plus for a year and one day he said, “Did you know I have a camera on my phone?!?” I wouldn’t ask Jerry to share a plant picture either.

      5. Phone camera, ha! I want a phone to be a phone! Mine is in my purse, turned off. I use it in case of emergencies, like needing a tow from Triple A again. I accidently took a picture of my finger once. I miss film and snapshots!

    1. anne marie,
      That cactus has grown another foot in the past year! I’m sure it took me less time to eat that rose than it did for them to make it!
