    1. This year, I simply moved them into the sunroom before the first frost. Other years, I've kept them in the garage, and then moved them outside in spring. But it's always hard to get the timing right to coincide with Easter or a specific date. So, I'm taking the easy route this year. ;-)

    1. I LOVE the Paper Whites! They do have a unique scent, but they are so graceful and lovely. My mom gave me one this year in a bulb-forcing vase. :)

    1. Yes, pretty pink, for sure. Pink is not my favorite color, but this shade makes me smile. :)

  7. Gorgeous! I'm almost at my winter "turning point" - only one more month and the onions are being sown...a whole other type of "sweet smell ;)

  8. Amazing what a bit of pinkish color and green can do for my day about now.
    Thanks for this Beth!

  9. I just googled forcing bulbs to flower, because I had heard the phrase and didn't know what it meant. Wonderful idea to provide colour and cheer during winter. I love hyacinths, they really seem to belong in a pot.

  10. So beautiful. A friend game me a paperwhite just beginning to send up shoots and now it has been in bloom for three fragrant weeks and going strong. I should say it is in my bedroom which is kept VERY cool. The amaryllis will be blooming soon, too.

  11. Nice! Maybe it's not too late for us to force some bulbs.

  12. This hyacinth is so beautiful! Hyacinths don't do very well here, but a pot indoors would be a cheerful run-up to spring!
