Paperwhite - Day 5

I don't know if you can tell but it's a pretty blue bowl. 
Clear blue, like an old marble.

These photos were taken today - January 21 in the morning.

Should I put them in the front (east) window in the morning and the back (west) window in the evening so they will get more sun??

Paperwhite - Day 2

Jan. 17 - Day 2
On Sunday, Jan 16 , my daughter and I each planted a bowl of Paperwhite bulbs.

Did you know? Narcissus were named after the legendary Greek youth Narcissus who was strikingly handsome. (from The Gardeners Network)

I couldn't believe it the next day when they had already started sprouting!!

If you don't have anything better to do, check back to see how my bulbs are growing!!

A Visit To My Father In Law's House.

I was visiting my Father In Law during the "Southern Storm" and took some pictures of his yard. This is a picture of his deck and the lattice around it.

I love the lattice and the way he has fancy post tops.  
I want a lattice just  like his!

Ahh, another secret little path!   My favorite thing!!

And the path is paved in stone, with flowers along it (well, I don't really know if there are flowers along it, but I like to imagine there are).  

Best of all is the arched trellis, way at the end.  I love Arched Trellis's!! 

Of course, I imagine it covered with Roses.

This is the view from his back door.  Lovely.  But I would enjoy it more in the summer.
I don't like the cold.

I see beautiful things everywhere I go.  And wonderful ideas.

And I always start arranging them in my minds eye, just as if they belonged to me.  I know just where the Rose Garden would go if it were mine!

Do you do that?
