The orange and the green

Well, today's "blooms" are not in fact, blooms at all, really, but the seed pods that are left after this thing blooms!

I'm not quite sure of the plant variety, other than to say it is a bromeliad of some sort; its leaves are spikey along the edges, and when blooming (small pink/white flowerettes), the center turns bright orange, and these sort of orange-yellow berries last for several months. Currently, it's the only other "color" in my garden, besides my camillias...
