I'll atart out with some Amaryllis.

The Jatropha multifida (coral plant) is looking good.

Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle and overcome your difficulties. Grace enough to confess and forsake your sins. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears."

Lovely, Jim. Is your white begonia fragrant? If it's the same one I have (and it looks just like it) it has a wonderful perfume in the morning just as the air is warming up. Go have a sniff about 10 or 11 tomorrow morning.

Beautiful amaryllis, I've been circling around some of those stripey ones for a while, and I think I need to get some. Mine are just putting up buds, but they are on the north side of the house, so have stayed very cool until just recently.

Thunbergia has a couple of blooms open, and Braz. Red Cloak came through the cold weather without even a blankie.

My huge row of Shooting Star clerodendron were just opening their flowers before the cold weekend, but don't seem to have any damage, surprisingly.
