Paperwhite Narcissus

I love the South because Spring comes early, even in December. Well, not really but the paperwhites in my yard are blooming this week. I suppose it’s not really early since they typically bloom between Thanksgiving and Christmas in areas near the coast or in protected microclimates. But you can have the beauty and fragrance by forcing the bulbs no what where you live.

Beautiful, Sheila...they send such hope. Our paperwhites won't be out for a few months yet...but your photo shows me what I can expect in just a little while.

I had forgotten how early they bloom here, Marion. Hope your mom is better.
