My paperwhites are blooming now and my amaryllis will be blooming soon. Actually last year's bulb has a bud too so there will be 3 stalks of flowers soon. The color will be a surprise.
The first year that I had paperwhites I wondered what was that strange smell in the house. I finally realized it was the flowers. I enjoy the smell now although the first time I thought it was strange.
Our old snow was all melted except the piles along the streets and driveways. Yesterday it flurried all day and now our town is coated in white again. I don't think it is going to amount to much accumulation but it is COLD again. My van sits in a heated garage most of the time and it is going to have to sit outside all day today while I work. I hope it will forgive me.
