It Grows

Remember I showed you the paper whites my mother bought for me? Well, they have been growing, slowly, but growing. My mother’s amaryllis has already begun flowering. I suspect I know why hers was so quick and mine so slow. It’s the temperature we keep our thermostat set. My mother’s is set for 68 but the reading says 70 or even 72. Ours is a programmable model which is set for 63 during the day and 60 at night. That’s my theory anyway.

    I think you’re right. Just look at the pretty greenness though…even that is cheerful when it’s so grey outside! 🙂

    It’s coming along nicely! We’ve got some warm days coming up, maybe that will give it a growth spurt.

    You must be saving a lot by keeping your thermostat so low, I do the same because it is both eco-friendly and thrifty. I’m sure that they will catch up soon!

    Your paper whites are growing well. I love forcing bulbs inside. We have an amaryllis in the kitchen that blooms in the summer.
