In Westfield, Indiana, we had three times the normal February 
snowfall.  Colder than normal almost every day.

So I'm happy to have the Clivia House bursting into bud and bloom.  I'll 
post pictures in my blog later this week, at:…

For now, there are Belgian-descent "reds" (red-oranges) and plenty of 
peaches, both Chubb Peach as well as Victorian Peach.  A seedling blooming 
for the first time from two Solomone Pink parents is a nice medium to deep 
peach color.

A seedling from Keith Hammett (his cross #82065) is showing a nice red 
coloration (deep red-orange) on its first ever bloom.

So I'm happy that it's now March and no longer February; and I'm delighted 
to see Clivia blooms all over the greenhouse.

If you live within driving distance of Westfield (a northern suburb of 
Indianapolis), come over on Saturday, March 13th for the Midwest Clivia 
group get-together and Open House (1 to 4 PM EST) in the clivia 
greenhouse.  For lunch at 12 noon, please RSVP to <>.
