I have to show off my beautiful flowers, and they smell amazing too. I just love that with about fifteen minutes of my free time I made flowers bloom in my house.
Here is a little photo tutorial of my work.
|Stones in the bucket (I found out this bucket leaks so had to move them, but you get the idea).|
|Add more stones (you need a lot of stones).|
|Place bulbs in a sunny window. Don't forget to water them.|
One year I made paperwhites for Christmas presents (so easy to do and so nice) and even my mother-in-law, who has a black thumb, got flowers. She was impressed. (That reminds me I need to do that again.)
I also planted a amaryllis which is growing big leaves....
(wouldn't that be nice). I am also waiting on my tulips, which if you remember, I planted here. They are in the basement refrigerator until they have been kept cold long enough (March 9th).
I just love flowers and I think the flower faeries have smiled on me because I really do have flowers all over my house. Here is a small sampling.
