We are enjoying amaryllis blooms once again. I also forced some paper white bulbs but they did not do as well. Perhaps sitting too long at the florist decreases the vitality of the bulbs? Also, the amaryllis were a little different in that the leaves didn't really sprout and the stems were very leggy. As you can see, I had to anchor them with twine.
It's so wonderful to have flowers blooming in the house anytime of year, but especially, when the outside is completely covered in snow.
