Jim would like to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Last Saturday I changed the paperwhites container to a large round one with higher sides.  I also taped some white ribbon across the top to help the leaves from drooping when they finally get tall.

 Then I gathered some white lace and glued it around the top to cover the ribbon edges. I added a white flower swag on one side.
 one week later, the first paperwhite peeks through
I think the ribbon should hold them up. I just hope I will be able to tolerate the smell once they bloom!


  1. It looks very pretty and should do the trick. I thought they were one you would have blooming by Christmas, but maybe it's good you have something blooming after that.

  2. I can't wait to see your flowers. Some brighness to a dreary winter day.

  3. that is pretty. I love these pretty flowers but can't tolerate the smell. So Zoey, I will enjoy them on the screen when I go to your blog:)

  4. I know their scent is often given a bad rap, but I've never been put off by it. Perhaps I have had a non offensive variety??
