There are no Amaryllis belladonna, or naked ladies, in flower in this 
neighborhood -- where the species rarely flowers anyway, unless situated in 
a particularly superheated exposure. However, I saw a lovely print of the 
plant in a place that made me laugh: at the medical center, in the 
mammography room.

The technician hadn't heard the common name "naked ladies," and wondered if 
whoever did the decorating had!
