In the Garden - Three Kings Day

 Since we are leaving tomorrow, I went looking in the garden for something to share.
There is almost always something blooming at Perote, but the pickings are pretty slim today.

Just when I thought I had been skunked, I spotted this brave aloe shooting up its fire-cracker red blooms.  

Had I been a bit quicker, I could have captured the hummingbird that was checking the sugar content.  It must not have been high enough because he didn't return although I patiently waited.

Tomorrow is Three Kings Day! 
Here in Mexico, many children will receive their gifts tomorrow - not from Santa, but from the Magi.

I hope you all get a shoe full of goodies!

If not, then accept this example of desert glory as my gift to you!
