Forcing Spring

At this point in February it seems like Spring can't come soon enough. Dreary skies, slushy sidewalks and yet more snow in the forecast. On the upside, without the balcony to tend to my houseplants are getting a little more love and attention from me. They remind me that spring is really just around the corner... and I'm encouraging the optimistic sentiment by forcing paperwhite bulbs indoors. The bright green shoots make me so happy that I'm willing to overlook their pungent scent.

  1. They are so beautiful I am tempted to grow them myself but I am also not too fond of their scent. I'll just enjoy your flowers.
