The Promise of Spring
If you're like me you've been cooped up inside due to rain, snow, sleet, hail, cold, or all of the above, wondering when spring will get here. Certainly not soon enough!
On Christmas Eve 2009 we had an unusually bad blizzard for Oklahoma. We were due to travel for the holiday but found ourselves snowbound at home.
The sunset was beautiful looking out over the upper lavender field.
Purchase some bulbs. I like Narcissus for their lovely pure white color, and Hyacinth for their delicious fragrance. Remove them from their original packaging. Place some colorful shredded paper in the bottom of a cellophane bag, place the bulbs in the bottom, and tie with a lovely ribbon, or jute twine, as I did below. And voila! A nice little spring pick me up for someone special.
