Clivia in Bloom

      My Clivia miniata is now in full bloom, and oh what a sight with the afternoon sun poring into the kitchen.  The clivia has been a good and faithful friend for many years now, and many of her offspring have found other good homes.  A more undemanding house plant is hard to find.

      One reason I have not posted recently is that I have not been able to load my pictures to a post.  Have spent hours trying to figure out what was wrong.  I finally found someone else's blog where they had the same problem.  A comment suggested using Google Chrome as the browser while doing a post.  Yes it works, thumbs down to Google for disabling Firefox.


  1. I'm having the same problem too with loading piccies. I downloaded Chrome but can't get the darned thing to run properly. I'm finding that my images are now loading but they take forever and I'm still having to use Firefox.
    Loving the vibrant colour of your Clivia, what a wonderful boost it would give to any room - very eye catching.

    1. Hi Linda - on another blog I saw the suggestion that Picasa Photo works with Blogger. You load photos to Picasa, then to your blog. An extra step, but Picasa would probably allow me to do neat things to photos, and store them more orderly. Now if I had an extra two days to fiddle with it.
