The Celosia grown in the garden, dried in the greenhouse, and turned into a stunning wreath to brighten up the Winter backdrop.
This wreath will stay up through most of the Winter.  It’s like a cup of coffee for my eyes!

Timing

Each year I try to time the Amaryllis bulbs to open as close to Christmas as possible.
This bulb just began to show it’s pretty holiday red color…maybe this is the one for this year.
I tucked the pot into a vintage grain sack sleeve.

Paper Whites

The little star shaped blossoms sprouting from beautiful tall green stems.
When my kids were small we would measure them in the morning and at the end of the day.
They would grow sometimes as much as 3 inches in a day. They loved that little experiment.
Trying to slow down and enjoy the days leading up to Christmas.
