The Pineapple Lily or Eucomis autumnalis is blooming now.    I had planted the bulbs up a couple of months ago.  An easy to grow bulb it is rewarding me with many pretty blooms.    I am wishing you all a wonderful Easter.   Many of you will be sharing a meal with friends and family.    Our family will be here on Sunday.   If it is not  too presumptuous of me, take some time to contemplate the meaning of this Christian holiday.   It is a time of rebirth, renewal and forgiveness.     Blessings from me.  Valerie

Good to know that it is easy to grow and has rewarded you with many pretty blooms. It sure looks beautiful in your photo. But then everything looks lovely in your photos. :)

That is lovely and as usual haven't seen before. I don't think we have bulbs for that flower.
Have a lovely family dinner:)
