Aloe dichotoma in the "Quiver Tree Forest" near Loeriesfontein South Africa. It's dead, but no one has told the trunk of the tree yet.

This is what happens when you move and forget you had a plant in a box in the garage...

Return of the Zombie Sempervivum...

Don't know if this technically counts, but it sure seems lifeless before rising from the dead. It is just now returning to haunt my collection... : )
