Paper Whites (and having fun with editing)

I love having paperwhite bulbs in the winter.  Mine were started around Thanksgiving time and are finally blooming.  A few already bloomed and are done but most of them are just now really opening up.  I had 3 bulbs in one pot that are all done now.  3 more bulbs in the same pot are just now blooming.  Go figure!  I never claimed to have a green thumb:)  I'm just happy they have all finally bloomed.  I think they took longer than normal too.

I am having fun with my editing software:)  Finding more stuff it will do all the time.
If I ever buy and learn photoshop I will not resurface for months!

Have you ever 'forced' paperwhites in the winter?
Do YOU like how they smell?  My kids don't.  I kinda do.
Do you have a green thumb?  If so what kind of plants do you grow?  Houseplants or all outdoors?
Is anyone else ready for spring?  63 days till April!!

I've never forced bulbs but have given it thought. I don't have a good spot to hide them till they start doing something.

Houseplants I have one messy fern and one pitiful pothos which is unkillable.

The yard should be nice with daffodils come spring, but that is a while off here in Wisconsin.

Jill, I really do not like the way that paper whites smell! I keep walking in the room and wondering what died! Plus, you never know when and if they're going to bloom.Mine only began blooming a few weeks ago. Glad your are still looking good. I have one bulb left that should be opening up soon. If I'm lucky, I'll kill it and the smelly thing can then go in the trash. LOL
