After a season that blew out on hurricane winds and snow squalls, it feels good to retire indoors. It's easy to put aside thoughts of rough weather when you can surround yourself with the oh-so-very sweet scents of forced flowers and the happy bustle of holiday preparations.
Waves of paperwhile narcissi "Ziva" are now coming into bloom. They are planted in all sorts of containers--hurricane glasses, vintage bowls, Japanese tea cups, vases-- because they look lovely wherever they land.
Even the roots make a pile of pebbles some kind of wonderful. I'll be potting up more this evening . . . and every week.
