I'm Bloomin

Every year, I miss seeing my Paperwhites in bloom because they are around a corner of the house where I usually don't venture in the cold.  I also think each year that I will dig some bulbs and "force" them to bloom before Christmas.  But this takes a bit of planning ahead (which I'm not always good at). So Monday after I cleaned the remains of an old candle out of this really heavy glass dish, I wondered what I could put it in.  
Light bulb moment!!!

I went out and dug the bulbs which as you can see should bloom before too long.
I wanted to share them with you now and will show again when they bloom.

  2. Our Paperwhites are blooming madly but outdoors. I never thought of digging up the bulbs after they have sprouted. Anxious to see if they bloom now.

  3. Every year I think I will force blooms indoors so that I can enjoy them and every year "I forget". I hope you manage to see these ones comes to their fruition!
