1 :: paperwhites ...
In spite of carefully diarising when to plant my paperwhite bulbs so that they would flower at Christmas, this crazy weather made them flower four weeks early! In fact, they only took two weeks from planting to flowering.
Their scent fills the downstairs of the house and seems to be at its strongest in the afternoon when it is just starting to get dark.
Today, I took delivery of another batch which I think I will plant just a few days before Christmas Day so that I can something lovely to look forward to in the New Year.
