Yes, I am forcing the issue. The issue of Spring that is. Last week's bitter cold temperatures had me longing for warmer days of Spring. To help get me through the next few months, I decided to force a few Paper Whites and Hyacinth bulbs in my kitchen window. They are planted in pretty vintage glass bowls and vases. Now the snow covered ground is nothing but a backdrop to my little window garden. Hopefully, buy forcing the issue, Spring will come a little bit sooner.
