My bathroom/greenhouse is virtually a hothouse right now. I have two orchids almost ready to bloom, numerous Amaryllis bulbs with buds and now my Clivia has opened. I absolutely don't need another thing for Christmas (unless it's those amazing owl ornaments I posted yesterday!!) ;-)
For some reason, taking great pictures of the Clivia blooms is a challenge for me (seems like I get a lot of glare?) but here's the best of what I snapped yesterday.
The orange & yellow color combination makes me feel like I'm in a tropical paradise somewhere.
That's a great feeling in the middle of December!
I really believe (I said this last winter too) that I have a much easier time getting thru the cold winter months since I've added so many winter blooming plants and bulbs.
Last year, they had barely finished blooming when the early spring bulbs started. It looks like I am on track for a repeat this year. That could be a credit card commercial for gardeners:
Blooms all winter. Priceless!
