In early December, I went to the wholesale nursery for seasonal plants to decorate our home and side porch for Christmas.
I came home with this little ivy settee that had space to add your potted plants of choice.
I added narcissus and 6 weeks later, they are still blooming strong.
For the window boxes, I found rosemary topiaries and red cyclamen, which was fine for Christmas, but now, not so much.
White cyclamen would have been better for the duration, but what do I do about the topiaries?
Do they scream Christmas?
Can I shape them in to balls?
I'll admit, the view from the sunroom has been nice.
A real cure for the winter blahs.
But I think if I had it to do over, I would have put white narcissus between the topiaries and white cyclamen in the ivy settee.
Actually, if those cyclamen were pink...
It's all a moot point as the Winter Porch will soon morph in to the Spring Porch with new plants like pansies, daffodils and tulips!
Aren't you just counting the days until spring?
