Paper Whites

Posted by

Another winter favorite of mine. Paper Whites bring color, beauty and perfume to a winter day. I have found a variety that has a pleasant, but mild perfume: Wintersun .

A beautiful flower but all the more blissful if they smell delicious. Glad to know there is a 'smelly' one !! :-)

@DULCIE: Dulcie: Most Paper Whites have a strong perfume, which can be overpowering. They are easy to force indoors.
