This is my first year buying Paperwhites. I've always wanted them and have always forgotten to buy the bulbs. Did you know that they are cultivated in Israel along the Sea of Galilee? I thought that was so interesting. Perhaps that is why they are associated with Christmas, as the winter flower? Perhaps they bring blessings form a holy land.
I shall be waiting to see the first bloom. "A thing of beauty is a joy forever." John Keats
