Beautiful Clivia! I have never seen that happy it's blooming for you. I have been thinking the same of my garden this year. Although I do have plenty of things blooming, it's nothing like last year. My monarda and other perennials that were blooming this time last year are barely getting blooms now. It's an odd year isn't it? Hoping we both start seeing a lot more flowers very soon.


That Clivia is a winner! You have a definite talent with potted bulb plants--both growing them and photographing them! How fascinating that the bottom of the stem on the Clivia looks like it's braided!


So pretty! I have never tried to grow a Clivia indoors or out. You certainly have had a challenging gardening season-late snow and then hail! Your poor pot of succulents! Your roses look amazing in the post at the end of June.
We have had rain and more rain here. The garden is a jungle and the slugs are feasting on the abundant green. The mosquitoes are enormous!! Why can't Mother Nature be a bit more even handed? That's what I want to know.
