The Quiet Garden

December 1st and we have our first snow!   The garden is quiet now, the outdoor sounds are hushed, the chill in the air has a way of rushing you back indoors, and now it's time for fussing around indoors!

I planted my amaryllis today, very late, but today was the first of December so I can keep track of how many days it takes until it blooms!  I'm anxious to see how quickly they will grow!  I planted all three in one pot...they are from the a collection supporting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation...these are called Blossom Peacock....
These should be real pretty in the unusual shaped green flower pot I planted them in...

This is my Amaryllis from Christmas 2009...it was quite a beauty...only problem is it grew 38" tall and was very difficult to keep upright!  It was stunning though...
Happy December to all!

  1. How pretty Liz! I would love to try this I seen some paper whites I would love to grow too. I found my Christmas Catus has buds on it. I thought I had killed it and set it aside to put out in the shed and noticed it blooming I am thrilled. Oh thank you for sharing your playlist I love the music!
