sow and you shall reap


Who doesn't love fresh flowers in their home?
Paperwhites are gorgeous, inexpensive and a simple way to decorate during the holidays.
I planted some today, 
it took about 15 minutes and cost $8 for 8 bulbs from Home Depot.
 A good investment of time & money for the beauty they'll lend to my holiday decor.

Here is some inspiration, in case you're on the fence about planting some.

Thanks for the reminder! We plant them every year along with amaryllis bulbs. Beautiful photos.

Oh! That reminds me, better go look in the garage and see if I can find my bulbs from last year! I just love the look, though I can't say I'm a fan of the scent.

Thanks for your visit, and have a nice weekend!

Paper whites are gorgeous at Christmas. Your inspiration pics are lovely. I hope our Home Depot has some left. I really want to try growing them for this year. Thanks for visiting my blog.

I have never tried paperwhites, I see them every year and I always think..."this year", thanks for the reminder!

Pam, I am inspired by your blog every morning when I wake up! Enjoy your weekend - I can't wait to see what is next.....Gail

How pretty! Will these grow in time for the holidays? I guess you'll really need to give it some love to get them big enough for Christmas. At any rate, they will be lovely once they are full grown. Hope you had a great weekend!
