During the cold winter months, I love to see flowers blooming in my living room or kitchen. My friend just brought me a planted amaryllis bulb in wax. I’ve also grown paperwhites in the winter.
I love growing flowering things and how they contrast with the white, barrenness of the season. Both the waxed amaryllis and the paperwhite narcissus bulb kits make perfect holiday presents.
Checking on the growth of things (plants, nests) has always brought happiness into the day. I will wake tomorrow and check on the amaryllis since we don’t know what color it will be.
