Deebie, the Amazon Lily is usually out beneath a tree or shrub in the yard but I've moved it to the screened porch until spring.

When I saw yours, I realized that I'd left mine in the garage. With temps plummeting tonight and tomorrow night, I brought in nearly all of my houseplants today. Maybe with warmer temps and a sunny window, it may bloom for me. nodding I forgot that it's a winter bloomer.

Deebie, I bet it will produce some blooms if you move it to a warm location indoors ... just give it bright light but no direct sun.

This is just a carryover from Christmas eve, when it started to bloom. Still holding its blooms..so my Oncidium 'Sharry Baby' stays as my dining table decor this January.

It has been really dry here in our area, but thankful for some morning fog, the only moisture source my plants are getting outdoors.
Outdoors, still Narcissus paperwhite 'Ziva' is relishing all the chill and fog:

Indoors, Hoya shooting star is forming its buds..a show is on the way once more:

Schlumbergera continues to bloom:

More from outdoors:
Barbosella australis still holding on to its blooms from December, the chilly weather truly to its liking:

Crassula Springtime is busy making new buds... so excited to see these later on when it blooms:

This Pelargonium tri-color is not yet in bloom..but I love it when it gets chilled, more prominent leaf colors on display:

Saw this during my morning walk, flowering vine that grows on our common area fence.

Very pretty! Reminds me of a Perennial Sweet Pea Vine.

Everlasting Pea (Lathyrus latifolius)
