Every Christmas I buy paperwhite bulbs and they usually bloom about a week before Christmas. Some people don't care for the fragrance from the flowers but for me, it has such a powerful association. When my first child was born, it was the first week of Janurary, several years ago now, and many people brought us paperwhite bulbs as gifts. Now whenever I smell them, I get transported right back to the first week back from hospital.

Here's the last of my paperwhites from December!


  1. They are beautiful. I know that "smell transports you" feeling!

  2. they are so pretty! I love how smells remind me of wonderful past times

  3. Those are lovely! I should have got some paper whites this season, I love them too
