Beautiful banner Fleur!

Stunning captures, Fleur...beautifully combined for a superb banner!

Clivias are such rich bloomers. My late mother had 6 Clivia plants which bloomed profusely each year. In 2016, 2 years before she passed, she won the Sweepstakes Award in a regional 99-year old Flower Show held locally. The award for the most blue ribbons in the Horticulture Division and for the most outstanding bloom out of over 300 entries! The picture is Mom with her plant and ribbons when she was 96 years old!
Two of her clivia plants are in full bloom now!

I send you this bouquet of Jonquils to thank you for being so kind with your comments, thumbs and acorns, but mostly for your time to respond and acknowledge my submissions. Wishing you all well.

P.S. @Tom_F_GA The sentiment of your Mother's memory was very touching. Thank you for sharing so appropriately with the Clivia plant.

The bouquet is most definitely pretty Fleur. The daffodils (narcissus?) are astonishing!

Thank you, @Fleur569, for your kind comment about my share of my Mom's clivia. Since that day, I never see a bloom that I don't think of her excitement that day. It was my pleasure to share with you all.

Thanks, too, for the beautiful daffodils! What a treat to have received them! If only I could grow some like those!

Have a great week!
