Paper White Project – Week 3

Holy growth spurt!
These paper whites are growing faster than Liam – and that’s saying something!  As the mom to a boy who has shot up from a size 12 to a size 20 in the last 15 months, I recognize crazy growth when I see it. and these bulbs are definitely giving that teenaged boy of mine a run for the money.  
There’s still time for you to get on board the paper white train in time for Christmas – or Hanukkah for that matter.  Aren’t they the same time this year?
Inspired by this post, I stopped at Hewitt’s yesterday and sprang for a gigantic amaryllis bulb, which I promptly stuck in a pot of soil.  It was a bit of a splurge (sale price $11.99) but I can’t wait to see the gorgeous white flowers in my boudoir.  I’ll keep you posted on the progress of that project as soon as something starts happening.  From what I’ve read, they’re a little slower to get going but the payoff should be spectacular. What a treat – fresh flowers in winter!
