Enjoying nature indoors....

Well, I'm so glad I took the time to plant some bulbs. I'm enjoying some beautiful colors and fragrances as a result. As you can see, we have plenty of snow outside and more falling...

These amaryllis were planted Dec. 1st and they are finally blooming. The other two are close to opening their flowers- I just wish they had all opened at the same time!

I planted these Paperwhites in tall cylinder shaped glassware so it would support the plant..as you can see they've really gotten tall! I placed them in the kitchen window and they kind of found each other and made an interesting arch...

Snow, snow, snow, snow, snow! The ski resorts around Traverse City are happy! This is actually what we've gotten in the past few days. Most of the snow we had before had melted...
A lot of this is due to Lake Effect snow, which we get a lot of.


  1. Oh I just love it Liz...they look so very pretty.

  2. i love love paper whites i have some comming tall green so far love your display

  3. Liz your flowers are beautiful~~~ I am so ready for Spring!! Norma

  4. I didn't think to plant any bulbs but we have a little "mini garden" in our room by the sliding glass doors. A mini rose we got as a gift, 2 pots of an unusual coleus we had over the summer, and a piece of a hibiscus we rooted and are trying to save:) I love how your paper whites are growing!!! I do NOT envy you all the snow:):) XO, Pinky

  5. Hi lovely lady. I love your Flowers just Beautiful sweet lady.
    Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my Tablescapes.

  6. How wonderful Liz! I am sooooo ready for Spring! We have more snow on the ground this morning - it's still snowing now and ice is expected on top of that later this afternoon. I'm not going anywhere for at least 2 days! I wish I had planted some beautiful bulbs like you did!


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
