Paperwhite Update #2 / And They’re Off!

Posted in Family, Flowers, Plants by joncrispin on 29/01/2014

This is the tallest of the paperwhite stalks that I posted in Update #1.  At about 4.30 I looked at the bulbs, and they were almost completely dry and there were no flowers.  I added some water to the bowl, and at about 6.00 Cris noticed that two of the bulbs had started to open.  And they smell amazing.

    What a charming post. That really captures their delicacy and emergence for me. Thank you!

    Hank just had a very rare bath with Johnson’s Baby Shampoo.

    It’s kind of like having blooming paperwhites in one’s home, only not really.
