 My Paper Whites popped! 


It's my first time buying the kits I see every Christmas. The bulbs in a box...seems easy! I bought Paper Whites and Amaryllis patiently watched and watched, waiting and more waiting! One minute nothing and next look a Christmas beauty! My Amaryllis is close to being ready. Next year I'm going to plant earlier say when I decorate outside the day after Halloween!

Happy Tuesday!

Joining the ladies at Communal Global today!

So pretty! I've never tried the bulb in the box thing either but I think I will next year - I love the anticipation of waiting for them to bloom :)

Lovely! I got dizzy counting your stockings though.

I really love the shot of the snow covered trees.

Happy Holidays!

How pretty! I gave one of the kits to a friend when she lost her husband. I wanted her to have something to look forward to at Christmastime. When it bloomed, she was so excited.

I love the name of these flowers! Paper Whites, so dainty and precious xoxo

PS I just got caught up on Preppy's blog and read the great cookie calamity. Oh my gosh I would SO LOVE to meet some of those trash talking Alaskans. If I do, they better watch out!! Got the soap ready to wash out their trash talking mouths! Hope some of them see this comment :) Bring it "ladies"! This Jersey Girl in Alaska is locked and loaded!

Every year I swoon over those flowers...and the amaryllis. But I think to myself, "Too extravagant." And I pass them up.

This year, someone gave us an amaryllis. I'm waiting expectantly for it to bloom. I hope it's as extravagant as your beautiful paper whites!

Merry Christmas!

We started late this year too and are hoping for some color just in time for the new year.

I love doing tulips in the spring!
