blooming in the house

My paperwhites bloomed a bit ahead of schedule.
 I love the elegant look of these flowers, but I don't like the fragrance.
These bulbs have a milder scent.

I'm looking forward to painting them.

Also blooming, some violets

and a beautiful orchid my daughter brought for Thanksgiving.

Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! 


  1. Hello Carol,
    I am intrigued on how you just put the bulbs in a big glass vase.. that is so clever.
    The flowers look beautiful.
    I am sure you will be painting them soon.
    We don't celebrate thanksgiving here.. Hope yours was a good one for you.

    1. The vase has an insert that keeps the bulbs above the water.
