Indoor Bulb Beauty

One of the joys of winter indoor gardening is watching forced bulbs bloom. I love all the different unique containers that can be used and how beautifully you can decorate with them. While I'm still waiting for my amaryllis to bloom I did some poking around cyberspace to get some inspiration. I hope you enjoy these beautiful pictures and get some ideas too.

These are wonderful ideas Jackie. Great finds while you were poking around! I definitely need to find some more interesting containers for my amaryllis.
So sorry to read that you're sick. I hope you are on the mend very soon.

Ooo, I really like the Amaryllis in the second picture. Such lovely shading of color. I actually like the fragrance of Paperwhites (some of them anyway), but my husband doesn't like it. They're so pretty in any case.

I hope you are starting to feel better.

Great ideas! I'll have to store these away in my memory for next year.

Well if we just aren't a pair of sick-o's. I had the crud twice too. Lung infection and then either pnemonia or bronchitus - don't know was scared to go back to the Dr. knowing he'd stick me in the hospital again. But I had antibiotics here for pnemonia he had just given me so I was taking them. FINALLY doing good now.

Those are some fantastic pictures you got there. Sure are a welcome site after the cold weather we're having here.

Hope your doing better now - I know strep is a bear - the ONLY time I ever got to go to Reno I got it and spent the evening laying on the lounges they have in the bathroom with cold wet paper towels on my forehead.

Glad you are at least in good spirits!!!

Hi Jackie. Are you feeling better now?

Your bulb pictures are very pretty. I haven't forced bulbs in a long time. Need to do that. Flowers would be welcomed in the winter time.
