Then for Christmas I opened a package up, and it was a bigger flower pot and four nice sized Paper White bulbs from Leah. She felt bad that the smell bothered me, but she didn't find that out until after she had already bought the bulbs. But that is okey. I still love the flowers, it's just the smell that gets to me after they're in full bloom, for about a week! Just like lilies - that smell is even worse.
These are growing so tall that one tipped over so I had to tie a ribbon around them. There are still several other blooms to open up. Doesn't it look nice and "springy". After they're done, I'll save the bulbs and replant them outside. We'll see if they will keep going, or just rot away. I know a lot of these bulbs aren't meant to last, but we'll try.
Just having these blooming, makes me want to get into the garden. I plan to do better this year with my flowers than I did last year. Had so many "irons in the fire" that my garden didn't get the attention it deserved. I don't get the seed catalogs anymore, so that is probably a good thing. They are fun to go through and dream. I like to spend my money locally, so I never ordered anything, so that is why I don't get them any more.
A cold, but sunny day here today. Have a great weekend friends. jo
