It’s winter for sure here in the Heartland. Horribly cold the other day and a glaze of ice tonight. Hopefully everyone is tucked away in their homes around a warm hearth 🙂
My indoor bulb pans are doing well, and the poinsettias are still alive 😉 So far so good with my Rosemary tree. This year I am keeping its moisture levels higher – as I learned researching for the Christmas Plants page. I think I will go ahead and repot it into a bigger pot in the coming week. I hope it lives til I can plant it in my garden.
I started writing this before Christmas and was interrupted until today… and (being Ohio) now we are in a whole ‘nother weather pattern. We’ve decided it should be a warm Southern winter with rain and mild temperatures. Someone decided, anyway. I even dreamt my bulbs were blooming, but that was because I checked on my forced bulbs and was taking pictures of them, I think. The first set of paperwhites have one flower just breaking. The second set have sprouts only an inch high or so, and the big bulb pan is still taking it’s time. It has an amaryllis, a hyacinth, and three paperwhites. I love the look of the bulbs breaking through the green decorative moss on that one. Usually, I just plant in a bed of rocks with water. I think I stopped this post to snap some pics, so I’ll check to see if I have something to illustrate for you. The old saying of it being worth a thousand words!
