|Paperwhites on the breakfast room table -- January 2015|
Paperwhites grace the breakfast room (and sometimes the dining room) table
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan . . .
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow
In the bleak midwinter long ago
The paperwhites brighten those bleak midwinter days,
My first two planters which I started today
(I usually start them right before Christmas
so that by this time in January, I have blooms!
Alas, not this year!)
I love these bulb bowls
Bought years and years ago on a trip to Washington D.C.
In the museum shop store at the Washington Cathedral.
Each holds 5 bulbs and they make a pretty display when they're blooming,
which will be by the end of January!
I have another dozen bulbs that I'll plant in a week or so
So that I'll have blooming flowers in the house through February.
Besides the blooms, I also like the fragrance of the flowers.
I love the smell of the breakfast room when I come down in the morning.
