Each Monday from Rambling In The Garden Cathy invites us to share a vase assembled from materials collected in our gardens.
Today’s vase is from my indoor garden courtesy of my beautiful niece Julie and her family who surprised us with a Christmas gift of paperwhite Narcissus, preplanted in an old wooden box.
The bulbs have opened at different rates, beginning with a particularly eager one that sprouted greenery 3 or 4 times faster than the others. It bloomed for a few days alone in its splendor, until several others could catch up. In hindsight I think the paperwhites may have wanted a sunnier location than our east-facing kitchen window, but all in all they have been happy.
We have been enjoying the fresh springlike blooms though spring weather feels far away.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In The Garden for hosting and giving us an opportunity to share flower designs across the world. Visit her to discover what she and others found to place In A Vase On Monday.
