PaperWhite Blooms for the Holidays

If you aren’t familiar with these fragrant beauties, let me tell you a bit about the delicate blooms. 

Last year I wrote a post about these beautiful flowers Christmas Indoor Blooms – PaperWhites Ready for the Holidays. It was the first time I had owned them, and I loved them so much, I am making an even larger planter this year.

You can get 10 bulbs for a great price HERE. Happy Planting!
