Paper Whites

I went to one of our local grocery stores the other day and found these paper whites for a good price at about $6 for a pot of probably six bulbs or so.
I put them on our table with some pine cones and candles that sit upon two rustic 2×4’s.
Every time I pull out the camera , Mazi starts posing. Too bad she always looks so ‘disheveled’.
The Rosemary from my garden was a little dry so I traded the herb out for the new bulbs.
The Rosemary in the jars are doing great but the ones in the urn were dying. Luckily I used a lot of it for Thanksgiving cooking.
I was looking through the Christmas decorations and found this berry garland.
I wrapped it around the urn.
I like the way it looks on my checkered table top.
I have had good luck growing these seasonal bulbs in tall glass vases with the bulbs submerged in water. We will see how well they do here in this soil.
I am hoping they will be in bloom for Christmas or just before.

I love paper whites! I've never tried to force them myself, but always thought that they were so beautiful! Maybe somebody around here is selling them. I'd love to have some for this Christmas. Your room looks gorgeous and Mazie is such a cutie! Hugs, Leena

Love the way you styled it too with the pinecones and candles.


I love paper whites, and your display is so beautiful. I wish I could grow them, but I have cats that eat any plant I put in the house, real of artificial!

Boy oh boy I need some paperwhites. Lovely!


So glad that you found some paperwhites! I think that's a good price. I bought bags of bulbs and it ended up being about a dollar per bulb. They're so pretty in that urn!


That urn is so pretty wrapped with the red berry garland. Love it!
