    We went out this morning and picked paperwhites to bring inside. It was chilly, I wore a jacket, but we braved the 48 degree weather to get our spring flowers.
    For those with snow, take heart--spring will come!

    Well Lady J, this post made my day. What a sweet thing to do. I for one will be living vicariously through your thoughtful post and pretty paperwhites. :flower::stew1::stew2:

    Lovely paperwhites Marlingardener and thank you for the lovely thought. We haven't had any snow so far, but frosty weather and solid ground.

    That pic of yours is genuinely heartwarming.
    What a decent still-life. I have seen that earthwork tray before, I believe. It is; dare I say, very cool.

    Amazing! I'll enjoy yours as it will be a few months before we have any blooms to pick!
