The monster

My Aloe Vera has been growing to such substantial heights and spikey, toothy thickness, we've named it the Salrac.

Yesterday I moved around my jungle for pruning and watering.  Unfortunately, this monster kept tipping, because the pot it was in had a narrower base and all that weight was off center.

So my daughter and I dug out a more stable pot and transplanted it.  Definitely a two person job.

During which I discovered a large, bleeding scratch on my arm from the several times I had caught it as it tipped.

Not only is it a monster of a plant, but it's bloodthirsty!

She is so cute and comfortable curled up  like that, but I'm trapped and my butt is starting to go numb.

My spot...

Both cats love it when we recline on the new couch.

I bought some "bamboo" for my daughter, some time ago.  It turned out not to actually be bamboo, but she loved it anyhow.

The original container it came in got broken by a cat, and now it sits in water, it's fascinating roots visible.
