so pretty but......

the paperwhites have burst open
so pretty but oh so stinky!!
maybe its just me?
they got quite tall and kept falling over
so i cut them and put them in a vase
it seemed to tone down the smell
thankfully :D

Lovely indeed. I don't mind the smell of paperwhites, but I normally put mine in a hallway where their scent disperses throughout the house in a gentle way, rather than when cooped up in one place. And we all react differently to smell, of course.
I have hyacinths starting to open. I just. can't. wait.!

Hi Tabby,
Paperwhites are SO pretty, but you are right!! They do not smell nice.
Still, it is a miracle how they bloom around here in the freezing weather.
Thank you for dropping by!!!

Oh, they are so pretty! That is interesting that cutting them and putting them in the vase helped tone down the smell!!!

too funny, you and I are a lot alike
Love the "look" of paperwhites, but I cannot even be in the same room with them...the smell really gets me!
Happy Winter Tabby!
