"More than anything, I must have flowers, always, always."
When I say that I love flowers, it is no exaggeration. I cannot imagine a world without them! Our winters are far too harsh for any flowers outdoors, but I am so thankful to have these Paperwhites blooming cheerfully on the kitchen windowsill! (They are actually not in a vase...I was going to cut them if they got too "leggy", but so far they have been fine). Sometimes when I'm working in the kitchen, I'll suddenly get a whiff of their perfume. They are wonderful!
I like how the sun shines through the petals...
You can see what others have found to brighten their winter day at Rambling in the Garden.
I am a passionate gardener and seed-saver, who also enjoys playing the violin and accordion, running, spending time with my 4 golden retrievers, keeping chickens, photography, and reading.
