Once again, I’ve mistimed my paperwhite narcissi. Just three weeks after planting they are in full bloom, filling every corner of the house with their intoxicating fragrance. Wise to the bulbs’ tendency to flower prematurely I planted another bowl-full last week, which I hope will show their ice-white faces on Christmas Day. To be absolutely sure I have yet more bulbs in reserve, which planted this coming weekend should be good for New Year. This time I will not be beaten!

Seems like this year you’ll be winning the battle with the paperwhites 🙂
Beautiful and it sounds like you have a plan so you will be enjoying beautiful blooms for weeks.
Well, that is the plan, when I finally get home! No sign of paperwhites in Holland, but lots of poinsettias everywhere.
