My hopes for a sunny, flower-filled Easter have been dashed -- it's cold and windy and might even snow -- but here is our indoor Spring surprise:
I'm not very knowledgeable about plants, so I had no idea that this long, straight plant with not very many big leaves would suddenly bloom. We noticed the unopened bloom Friday night, and Saturday morning, there it was. It's really big!
Mom, do you know what it is? It's so pretty and I feel like Spring has at least arrived inside our apartment! What a lovely gift for us.
