Three days later on January 14--
And on January 17--
First blooms on January 19--
And in full bloom on January 20--
I wish you could smell them, because they are so fragrant they make the whole room smell nice. Some people don't like paperwhites because they do have such a strong fragrance, but I like it. They tend to get floppy, so I turn them every day to the light to keep them standing straight but I always have to tie them up, too. So that's pretty amazing, from bulbs to blooms in 8 days. I plant them 5 at a time and I have 5 more so will plant those in a few weeks for some February blooms. Just what we need in these dreary days of winter.
