I used to forget to plant indoor bulbs early enough to bloom the week or two before Christmas. But for the last few years I usually plant them the first week of November and I’ve had pretty good luck with them blooming when they are supposed to!
Here are the amaryllis in the sunroom. I love all the fall colors outside the window.
They won’t stay here. They’ll probably end up on one of the fireplace mantles. I just start them here so they’ll grow well. Looks like Fall and Winter décor mixed with the trees in the background.
I know you’re wondering why they are already this tall. I purchased the bulbs at Lowe’s last weekend and when I took them out of the box they were already growing!!! I’ve never had that happen before. I hope they don’t bloom too early. I’ve also been to Lowe’s twice and they still don’t have paperwhite bulbs yet. I always plant paperwhites. I love their fragrance.
I just planted them in a few rocks and water. It’s less messy for me than the soil. I covered the bottom of the glass vessels with wide burlap ribbon and layered red satin ribbon on top.
Notice the vintage toile? I love this hunting scene. I was just playing around with it last weekend to see if I want to use it in my holiday décor.
I’m thinking simple red and white for the holidays…with lots of red toile!
On another note, here is my first holiday magazine purchase this year. I couldn’t resist at the grocery check-out line. I’m getting in the holiday spirit early.
I love both these covers and I especially love this wreath with the roses.
I think Murphy is getting into the holiday spirit, too. Or maybe he’s just tired of me taking so many photos.
I KNOW it’s too early for Christmas, so I promise next week I’ll be posting about what I’m doing for Thanksgiving décor!
