nature in the home

Joining in again with Lou this week and her series 'nature in the home'. We used to have a huge one of these [billbergia nutansa few years back, but had to give it away when we went travelling for some time. I've missed it ever since, most of the year it's just the green spiky leaves, and then suddenly these beautiful pink spikes appear with their dangly blooms. We were thrilled to find this one at a local plant sale a few weeks back, despite not being in bloom at the time I jumped for joy so sure it was our old favourite.
