Paperwhites in the Porch

                                                     Hello everyone!

                  I love to have paperwhites growing this time of year as they should bloom for the Christmas season giving a natural look and a little bit of an indoor garden.
               They look pretty growing in different containers. This year I am going with a French look.

                                  These beautiful roses are still bringing me joy.

                           My garden angel resides in the porch for the winter tucked into a corner.
                           I love this morror that came from Cool Breeze in Summerside a few years ago.
I am going to put some winter greenery in my old watering cans soon.

 I am off to a tea for the Queen's Jubilee at the Culinary Institute that I just heard about this afternoon. I hope I can take a few pics to share.

Thank you for visiting,

Hi Carolyn...I'd like to have some paperwhites, too! They look so perky.

So glad angel is on the porch for the stormy weather ahead.

Take care. Susan

As these scenes of flowers and plants that grow are beautifully staged and photographed! The softness and fragility of flowers goes well with all these objects zinc and stone: it is a place so wonderful home!
Beautiful day!

Oh, wow! That sounds like a festive and delicious event! How fun!!!

I have never forced bulbs indoors before, if you can believe it.... I think this is the year, though. I've been visiting Martha Stewart and reading up. ;)

I have to choose carefully, though. I'm so allergic to scented spring bulbs! =( SO! Post lots of pictures of your paperwhites for me, please! =]

Wow.. your photos looks really awesome and inspiring. I've been trying to grow herbs in our kitchen and I think I really don't have the green thumb. It is getting to be so frustrating but I am looking forward to growing new ones next year. I hope that you can visit my site too.. www.socalgreens.com
