The Fruits of Our Labours

I have written before about what we do in winter to survive. One of my "must haves" or "must dos" is to plant bulbs - the bigger the better.  I always say that the bulbs get us through to Valentine's Day and then we are very close to March with milder days above freezing. Spring is in the air.

Here are the fruits of my labours.  In late December, I planted up a load of bulbs that my husband had given me as a Christmas gift.  Here is the bountiful Amaryllis.

  1. Those are gorgeous Carol! What a great idea, plant indoors so I can have them around me to remind me that winter is not forever. Thank you.
