About a year ago, Harry, our tropical plant expert, gave me a clivia and a walking iris. The clivia's a bit more persnickety and hasn't bloomed yet, but the iris has been displaying very nicely. This is blossom #2 of three:

Also known as apostle plants, these delicate looking irises are surprisingly hardy. This is a good thing for me, as I don't do delicate well.

Blossom #3 showed up this morning. As they don't last longer than a day, I'm hoping to get home in time to catch a couple images of it in decline, as they fade beautifully, too.
