Hello and Happy New Year! It was off to a slow start for us this year. All of our people could find time for a visit only after Christmas, and so we have been in relaxed holiday mode for an extra week. The decorations are still up for one more day yet, but I am already greeting the new year with the thrill of something green blooming on the windowsill!
This is only my second year of planting paper whites, and they are the cheeriest way to start off a bitter winter. They are so symbolic of a fresh start. So easy, and such an antidote to gloomy weather.
A small system blew through overnight leaving behind a brief dusting of snow and an overcast sky, but the blooms go on and on.
Such a simple pleasure!
Crazy easy. Just set the bulbs down in a bed of pebbles and keep the water level.
First time I have used this sweet little McCoy bulb pot.
I have never watched a minute of Game of Thrones, mind you, but the young old boys keep reciting a funny line from the series,"I am too fat for my armour!" And I find myself in exactly the same state!
But looking forward to calmer days. Ready to launch a new year of growth and bloom, armed or not.
Ready or not,
Here we come!
I hope it's been a great start for you!
Happy New Year!
