Holiday blooms

It is not to late to grab Amaryllis bulbs to force for the holidays.

I like to place them in glass containers with a few inches of pebbles on the bottom.

The bulb and roots are just as pretty to me as the flower.

24 days of Merry

Bleaching bottle brush trees.

I’m pleased with the shades of creamy white that appeared

after a soak in diluted bleach water.

They make the perfect backdrop for my little wooly lamb.
