We are home from the frozen north...

This was our view of Mother Nature on Sunday morning. The first snowfall of the year is always exciting - but this was about the third or fourth snowfall in the North!

Monday, we made the first leg of our return trip - heading south. On the way, we stopped for an early lunch. This was on the side of the diner. It had warmed up a little since it was close to noon...

This is what Mother Nature had to show us on our arrival home!

Poor things were leaning toward the sun, trying to get some sun food! I am sure they will straighten up again with some rotating.

This is how they look in "full bloom". I wish you could smell them - they are divine!

And look at my amaryllis sticking out it's tongue!

Even though I really didn't have room for souvenirs (trying to avoid the check bag fee, don't you know..) I did buy another paper white kit! I threw away the bulky pot, growing medium and the box and tucked the bulbs into a corner of my bag. Now I can have a second crop!!

I'm glad you are safely home. Thanks for the "paper-white" update. Love, WS

When I won my callas, some of the 'players' were discussing bulbs. Some thought the paperwhite's fragrance wasn't fragrance-like at all. I guess beauty isn't only in the eye of the beholder!
