My young yellow clivia got buried in the greenhouse somewhere by mistake during the plant protection frenzy over the weekend. Today I realized clivia needs a spell of cold temps in order to bloom. So I went hunting for it in the greenhouse. I *thought* I was organized in there. Apparently not! It wasn't in the first area I looked. It wasn't in the second place I looked. Did I feel silly when I called out, "Clivia, where are youuuu?!"? Not really. I knew she would show herself if I asked. And there she was, hiding between the hoyas and the Japanese/Holly fern. Now safely tucked away in the cooler unheated garage. I hope she blesses me with yellow flowers come spring for my efforts.
