Isn't it amazing to see so many blooms in the middle of March? This first bloom is from Emily's clivia plant. She said that it was hard-hit by the frost in December but seems to have survived well except for a few 'bumps and bruises' to it's leaves. My own is in far worse condition and a big bloom is coming too, I'm happy to say! And surprised. Maybe it was the fear of dying that has them getting their act together and showing how they can really behave.

This photo is of one of my azalea plants that's not exactly covered in blossoms, but this one will do nicely for a camera pose. I love the frilly, pink feminine look to it........but it is a tough survivor in spite of the fragile look. It's had to put up with all kinds of neglect but it hangs in there faithfully giving off blossoms here and there. I'll probably be showing more flowers and garden photos the next few days. Tis the season for getting out in the sun and feeling good!!
