I know Spring is here when the clivia is in bloom

My favorite time of the year is when the clivia is blooming. The blooms are in full force right now especially after yesterday's downpour.

We don't have much of a front yard - in fact we hardly have any yard at all - and most of it is in the shade, so clivia is the perfect plant for us. I just wish the colorful blossoms lasted longer than a few weeks in early Spring.

Check out the succulents too

Madeline - your front yard looks like a tiny rain forest! It snowed overnight both in the Mts and in the city here in CO.

Thanks, Barb. I took the photos right after the rain.
My sister-in-law from Denver always says, "if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes." Hopefully, you'll have your spring weather soon.
