Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

Clivia
The first photo, taken several years ago, is of a Clivia flower. I see  I have already posted that photo.

The second shows the Clivia plant in the snow in January.

The third photo shows the Clivia today.

Either Clivia enjoys a bit of cold or it has just come of age as we have never had so many flowers in the past.
I can’t remember just how many years we have had these plants, about 37, but I do remember where I pinched them from, a garden of a house which was to be demolished and a block of flats built on the plot. So actually I saved them...
