PICTURED ABOVE, and in comforting contrast to the threatening snowstorm outside, is Tulipa ‘Christmas Dream.’ This early single tulip, with enchanting, pastel-pink petals edged in white, grows on the broad sill in my bedroom. And here is a photo gallery of other forced hardy bulbs in the house, all dressed in their February finery (click photos to enlarge):
If, in autumn, you forgot to plant a few hardy bulbs for your own private spring, don’t despair! Your florist will have from now through March already-forced purple hyacinths and golden daffodils. A few pots of these fragrant harbingers will brighten the whole houseplant picture…and do wonders for your winter-weary soul.
