My neighbor, Pat, gave me this beautiful plant two years ago. It blooms every spring --- around mid-May.
I had forgotten the name of it and had to really do some serious Googling before find it.
It's called Clivia.
Pat told me to keep it indoors when it gets cold. When it's warm outside, Clivia is very happy outside, but must be kept out of direct sunlight. My north-facing front porch is perfect.
This photo is from 2 or 3 weeks ago (which should be a clue on how seriously behind I am on EVERYTHING in my life). Isn't it a beauty? I wish I had picked off that little dead bit. I never seem to notice the flaws til I view my photos.
