Please return flowering plant

On the night of March 12, someone took the orange-blooming clivia plant from the entry of Ridge Medical Office on Litton Drive. I had brought the plant for the enjoyment of the patients and staff, and from the comments we received, the goal was accomplished.

I started the plant from seed 27 years ago; it took six years to begin to bloom, but hasn’t missed a year since. Many people have enjoyed its cheery, early promise of spring.

I would very much appreciate it if the person who took it would return it after it is done blooming or, at the least, return a division of it to the office. I could buy a similar plant, but this one has a history for my family, one of my first gardening successes.
