Is It Spring Yet?

The Winter Paperwhites...look it! They're blooming! :-)

Update: Darko's comment sparked a thought about how this Flower Project began as a leap of faith and ended in what you see here. I know they're not much, but you must realize that I have never had a green thumb and was doubtful that anything would ever come of putting some bulbs in a bowl of rocks without dirt. But with time and patience and a little watering and trust, it blossomed I realize now that this is a metaphor for our walk in faith with God. Sweet. :-)

We were given a gorgeoous box of these paper whites. I guess they should be taken out of the box. Mr. Green Thumbs thought by watering the box they would simply rise out of the cardboard in full beauty.
You see, it's the box we really like.

Thanks, Rach. :-)

Darko, in the past, I would have left them in the box knowing full well that nothing more would ever come of them. This is a first for me and I must admit to a fair amount of surprise. You might try taking them out of the box. ;-)

Badoozie, you need some of these! I got them as a Christmas gift but I think you can get them at Crate & Barrel (that's the box they came in). I'm sure any nursery has them. They'll brighten up (and smell up) your new place. :-)

Ah yes, the crocuses are coming soon too!

Wow! Those are really pretty. And they just grow in rocks?
