After reading Eileen's blog post about paperwhites, I remembered that I had wanted to buy some this year. Since I rarely shop in brick & mortar buildings, I did not have the chance to see any to remind me that I wanted to buy them.
Today I ran to Home Depot to see if they had any left. Lucky for me, they did--in a big bin just as I entered the store. I grabbed a bag and went right to the register. "$2.49 cents," she said.
Holy smokes, I thought they were $4.99 a package. I did not even know they were 50% off. So I did what any sane woman would do--I ran back and grabbed another package.
So for five bucks I got 12 paperwhite bulbs. As soon as I got home, I planted them in this glass footed bowl filled with clear glass and green glass vase thingies--are they called marbles??
I saved one bulb to drop in this glass vase hugged by a holiday snowman.
Oh, dear, I just went to Eileen's blog to do the link and I noticed that she was not going to water hers until 3 weeks before Chistmas as they bloom quickly. I already watered mine. I guess I will have flowers before Christmas. I trust Eileen. She knows so much about flowers!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
