bulbs and cones...

It's time for forcing bulbs for Christmas blooms. This group of photos will inspire you to visit your local nursery for paperwhites, hyacinths & amaryllis.

Time permitting grow tulips, paperwhites, daffodils, or your favorite bulb flower.  Either cut or dig up bulb, clean off dirt and place in tall vase available at dollar store with addition of glass rocks for centerpiece.  Could get flowers from other source too.

Floral Arrangement--Hyacinths, usually available at floral shops in December, offer a break from traditional poinsettias. Display a single hyacinth in a glass cylinder thats slightly taller than the bloom. Stabilize the stem in glass marbles.
