I wish there was a fragrance app I could add to this blog! The sweet perfume of Paper Whites fill the air. It's intoxicating.
They're just about the easiest (and fastest) indoor bulb to grow ~ but they can be a little dickens. Some sprout incredibly fast. Others, quite slow. The only guarantee is how delighted you'll be once they bloom.
But, I think I timed it right this year! This big, beautiful bud should be fully open by December 25th.
Update on the new digs (I moved 6 weeks ago.)
Things are coming along! I've got a garage full of new doors and no one to install them. If that job falls in my lap, they'll be done by May but I've still got my fingers crossed I can find handyman desperate for some Christmas coin.
I like to keep life complicated (well, not really) ~ it wasn't as easy as me just moving. I moved. Then I had to go back to the old place, fix it up, and rent it out.
That chore, while trying to make this place liveable, had me wishing there were a few more hours in every day.
At last.. Planets aligned. Tenants moved in and I feel ~ once again ~ as if I'm walking on the sunny side of the street.
|Buddy: ratty cat ornament.|
I hauled out the fake snow, with grand plans to create a Charles Dickens village with my collection of wee houses. Came back into the room to find this ratty ornament smack dab in the middle of my display.
On the flower front, Orchids now live in the bathroom. Bright light + high humidity = some crazy-ass flower power.
And, I started an herb garden! Because, you see, I didn't have nearly enough greenery to keep me busy. :))
