Flowers in the Snow

It's gettting darker and colder and snowier.
In anticipation of the Dark Days, I potted up these paperwhite narcissus a few weeks back.
Takes 'em about 5 weeks to hit bloom size. The flowers last about 2 weeks- more if you keep them in a cool room out of direct sunlight. I have mine in the window but there's so little sun this time of year that it hasn't shortened the bloom time.

They make a lovely gift this time of year...
