Thanks to everyone who has been asking for an update on my paper whites experiment.  I moved the mason jars with the cranberries and paper white bulbs to the kitchen window and they have grown quite a bit.

I was hoping for blossoms by Christmas day, which may just happen as I the blossom sprouts are starting.  But I think I started too late and may see the blossoms for New Year‘s Day.  Anyway, I woke this morning to a stunning wintry backdrop for these holiday plants. 

The plants are hard to see in this picture, but you can get a sense for the growth, and more importantly, you can see what is shaping up to be a white Christmas here in Carroll County New Hampshire.
