How lovely! I am intoxicated by the fragrance of paperwhites, and love the glory of amaryllis. You have two very beautiful groups of blooms.

Thanks for your visit to my blog and for leaving a comment.

what a lovely way to warm a day. Love the pungent scent of paperwhites and amaryllis will always be a favorite like my Mother and Grams.

Very lovely flowers.

It's heartwarming to see your blooms. For the time being, I'll content myself with the fact most of our last snow is gone and waiting on our daffodils, which will be the first blooms I see here.

Beautiful! My African violets are blooming lots over the kitchen sink. That's about all we have in the way of flowers right now.

I'm like Sharon. I keep thinking --this year--. I can see where is is definitely worth the effort.

Pretty! Nothing blooming at our house yet.

It is cute how you grow Jonquils and Hippeastrums in tiny vases with some pebbles. A very attractive decoration.

Carletta said...

I've never grown either of these.
Beautiful blooms while you wait for spring!

The amaryllis looks like velvet. Outstanding color.
