Que the flowers (bloom) 12-20-12
I love it when something goes right. I had planted some paperwhite and an amaryllis bulb a few weeks ago (because I read a blog from a much more organized person than I) in hopes that they would bloom near Christmas.
Wow, today I walked by the amaryllis and I have 2 blooms. Its a twin!!! How exciting :)
and the paperwhite, although they are leaning abit, have started to bloom.
I tried to add the alcohol to the paperwhites as I had read if you use a little alcohol instead of water, it would keep the paperwhites shorter. I must have started watering with the alcohol a little too late, cause mine are pretty large. I am just happy to say "they are blooming". Right on Que!!!
Now if everything else will fall into place that easy, I can sit back and enjoy this Christmas!
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas, and your flowers bloom on Que as well :)
PS....After the amaryllis has finished blooming, I take it out of the water and let it dry. I then, plant it in the flower bed in the early spring. Here in Oklahoma, they will come up and bloom in the early Summer. Another bonus!!! :)
