This gardener decided . . . what better way to bring hygge to the dark days of winter than by nurturing some lovely amaryllis bulbs.
Not only will there be joy and comfort in the planting, but also in the watching -- and certainly in the blooming.
So I splurged!
I ordered four different amaryllis bulbs from that Flagship of Gardening - White Flower Farm. (I gotta tell you -- even just the choosing which bulbs to order was a hygge-moment!) Then, I gathered up my vases and some stones for planting, and I waited for delivery.
The bulbs arrived earlier this week, and yesterday - in the midst of our first major snowfall - I planted them.
Let's just say . . . these bulbs are big.
Like . . . pretty much too big for any of the containers I had chosen.
But I think it'll work out.
Now, I'm going to sit back and watch the show.
Hygge . . . for the gardener!
