Scenic Sunday - Red Hot Pokers

Don't know the botanical name for this plant, but it is
popularly known as "Red Hot Pokers" for obvious reasons!
This was taken on the hillside of the northern Adelaide foothills, about
15 minutes away from my home on an unusually warm Winter's day.

They are beautiful flowers and plants. We have a red hot poker flower here that attracts the hummingbirds in the summer. Great shots, Happy Scenic Sunday!

I learned that this plant is an aloe plant called Aloe Succotrina. It has beautiful blossoms and comes from the Western Cape in South Africa.
