Bring Spring In Early

It doesn't look like much now, but just you wait...

It doesn’t look like much now, but just you wait…

The very first thing I did the morning after we returned from Florida a week ago was to take my Hyacinth bulbs out of the refrigerator and bring some of the Amaryllis that had been resting in the basement up into my sunlit window.  I had already put the Hyacinth bulbs into the old forcing vases I have collected over the years before we left, and I had the Amaryllis all potted up.  Warmth and light will be all they need to burst into bloom in a few weeks.  This will cheer us up through March and early April when it will seem as if spring will never come.

One of the Amaryllis buds is already poking out.
