They arrived! My Narcissus Paperwhite bulbs. I came home one afternoon last week and they were on the doorstep in a little parcel.
I planted them in the vase/dish from the car boot sale we went to last month. They now reside on the living room windowsill. I'm keep my fingers crossed we have beautiful scented flowers in time for Christmas.
I had to make do with compost too as they'd sold out of bulb fibre when we went to buy some. Everyone must be planting theirs too. I'd like to get some hyacinths on the go as well...
I haven't killed the cyclamen yet. In fact it seems (whisper it) quite happy.
In other plant news: I'm drying out bunches of thyme and dill which we brought back from the market. I know they freeze too but I do like dried herbs. The yellow ticket in the background is from a craft fair we attended last weekend at the village hall. We didn't win anything. But I did have my first glass of mulled wine this year. And Joe tried his first mince pie. It met with his approval.
My spider plant has been re-homed. I spotted this plant pot in a charity shop and liked the look of it. I have a weakness for chunky ceramics and stoneware, particularly in shades of greens, blues and browns. One day I'll have shelves built into a kitchen alcove where I can display my collection. One day.
Probably around the same time we have a kitchen with an alcove. And a Rayburn. And a pantry.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend x
