Now that it’s February, and I’ve finally put away the Christmas decorations, and the last buds of my paperwhites have fallen, it’s time to prepare the bulbs for next winter.
Since this is my first year planting bulbs, I’m still learning some of the tricks of the trade. As you’ll recall from my post earlier this winter on growing bulbs indoors, I’ve got a large selection of amaryllis and paperwhite bulbs that are ready for their dormancy preparations.
When I was younger, my friend Allie’s mom always had the loveliest flowers blooming in their house in the middle of winter. When Allie moved back north last winter, she started up the tradition again and had a little spring oasis in her house. So it got me thinking…
Its been a while since I last posted. That’s mostly because I’ve been too busy enjoying my holiday downtime to do anything as laborious as opening my laptop. Reading books, baking, decorating, watching the Die Hard series 4.7 times – has been a full-time gig, and it’s be so wonderful! I’m all about ‘stay-cations’ now that we have a home of our own. I never want to leave. I’m not one to get homesick, but after travelling constantly for the past 4 months, I found myself yearning for the quiet of our house. So, I took two weeks off and enjoyed it thoroughly. There’s nothing like just being in your own space and soaking it in.
