Paperwhites in the Living Room

Over the Christmas holidays I received paperwhite bulbs as a hostess gift. I was so excited because I have seen them all over the blogosphere and have always admired their beauty. Now I had my own bulbs to plant.

They took about a good three weeks to begin to bloom and as of today they are still blooming!

Aren't they delicate looking?

So nice to see blooming flowers in the dead of winter!

Hope you are staying nice and warm!
Have a great day!!!

  6. Your paper whites are lovely.

    I am visiting via Junk Chic Cottage and I enjoyed reading your story. I too now have a love of photography due to blogging. My photos are so much better now - I also use a Canon - than when I began blogging. I'd love to go back an retake all my early photos that are so bad in comparison with my skills today. I still have a lot to learn.

    Have a lovely weekend.

  13. These paperwhites are such a lovely reminder of the beauty of Spring. I have been gifted paperwhites several times and have found that when they are blooming at their peak, the foliage has a tendency to fall over, I have tried various supports but the supports either look ugly or don't work. How did you keep both the foliage and blooms so nice and erect?

    1. I had to keep turning the container as they tend to grow and lean towards a natural light source. I have a huge bay window in my lining room so that is the direction in which they would lean. So if i rotated the pot 180 they would begin to start growing the opposite direction and straighten themselves up.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. They truly do brighten my day.
