Bloomin' Tuesday...


I hope you had a nice Christmas. Ours was wonderful! Our children and grandchildren (all 23 of them) have flown back to their nests and my husband and I are alone once again. There's a bit of sadness and relief in that fact. We're fairly certain our house was bounced a good three inches off its original foundation during the four days they were all here. Lots of action and fun!

I'm looking forward to a new year filled with hope and excitement. I've got a few designs percolating in my little noggin that I'd like to bring forth. I'm anticipating a lot of "creating" in the months to come! Tomorrow the January Plaque Attack will be published. The 2012 Themes for Primary and Mutual (LDS) will be the subject of January's plaques!

Two weeks ago I published a Bloomin' Tuesday post that featured some Paperwhite Narcissus bulbs that I had just planted and looked forward to blooming in about four weeks. They looked like this two weeks ago...


Little did I know that these bulbs were such fast growers. 
Last night they look like this...


As you can see I already have beautiful white blossoms from these bulbs...


This morning their little white faces were turned toward the sun.


There's a dichotomy that is fascinating in having something grow with abandon 
and blossom in the middle of winter!
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!
