Finally got my lazy self over to the nursery.
Did I need twelve?
But, cheaper by the dozen, as they say!
Gorgeous SUPER sized Amaryllis but . . .
Scavenger that I am, found a kit for $7.99 that was good enough for who it's for!
Sun was shining and my enclosed porch was WARM as toast.
So I got to work.
STONES, BULBS, WATER, and something to put them In.
Here we go.
Who doesn't like BLUE and WHITE?
Three down nine to go.
Grab ANYTHING, just get them planted!
A little SILVER never hurt anyone.
And this metal dish has been around longer than I have!
It was always filled with nuts in their shells this time of the year.
With some TWINE and a TAG,
this Mason Jar could step up to the rank of HOSTESS GIFT!
These GOODWILL urns have been spray painted so many times they've grown an eighth of an inch!!
Another GOODWILL oldie, tall enough to keep the PAPERWHITES upright!
(They say GIN does that too, SERIOUSLY!)
OH, my AMARYLLIS,
in a PLASTIC pot, HORRORS!
Supposed to go in the glass vase, before I read it needed holes for drainage.
Don't worry, it will be hidden in a lovely cache pot with moss covering every inch of PLASTIC
BEFORE it goes PUBLIC!
So EASY, even I can handle forcing bulbs!
You really just put the PAPERWHITE bulb in stones and add water.
Do pretty much the same with the AMARYLLIS only use potting soil.
And of course they need SUN, I know I didn't have to tell you that!
Now it's time to sit back (I do that really well) and wait.
In a matter of WEEKS, the house will look like MARTHA had paid it a visit!
Enjoy EVERY DAY,
Have a BLOOMIN good time!
