This is the first year, trying Narcissus in glass. I have attempted growing them in the past, propped with twigs and vine..all artsy. ...but they still looked kinda sad((((. Visited Halifax seed last week and was so impressed by their fantastic bloom display. Oh...could I do that???? Left feeling very inspired.
Found a tall twelve dollar vase at Winners ...added a few polished stones from a summer water feature, nestled the bulbs in the bottom, adding water just to their round ends. We are way too late for a Christmas display....maybe New Years? Goodness..the bulbs are growing steadily.
Regarding the carving...the Captain's first attempt ...white oak.... He says he is not artistic.. We were apart for a long time that year (him being at sea); he thought he would try his hand at carving this gift. Precious to me, the gift and he.
May your holidays be bright...and they fill you with light...and all that is precious hold you tight.
