Planting narcissus and bringing fall indoors…

Fall flowers awaiting their Thanksgiving debut

I love collecting thrift store trophy bowls and loving cups through the year

and planting the narcissus in them

easy….and so winter in the tropics to me!

Linda, that is a gorgeous floral arrangement waiting for its debut...lots of fall colours to enjoy indoors.
Wish the narcissus would do well here, they're so pretty when in full bloom....enjoy.

This reminded me I need to get the hyachinths(sp) out of the fridge in the garage and into the ground. Will bring blooms in February. New colors of blue, purple, pink and white.

No narcissus this year. Three amaryllis though.

have been catching up.
why on earth do i forget this little treasure of a blog?
i do not know. but it will stop right NOW. this forgetfulness.
i almost didn't leave my 49 seconds of heaven.
i could have stayed there all day. listening and watching those waves.
and the lamps. and the big black dog on his orange sofa. and the jungle.
nigh onto perfect is your lime. makes my mouth draw up with grins.
