Hi, my name’s Betty Owens and welcome to my blog.

You know, I'm a fan of horticulture and particularly love the Clivia plant. I have been an avid follower of the Clivia Society in recent years and I have had the opportunity to obtain this domain on which I will now be blogging about my world that revolves around the Clivia society.

You will be able to discover loads of contents about the home and garden as well as various topics around lifestyle itself.
