Smack in the Center

Growing up, Life Savers were one of my favorite candies and still are.  That may explain why every time I look at this periwinkle, I think there is a tiny lemon Life Saver smack in the center of the blossom.

It may still feel like winter outdoors but it looks like spring indoors!

Trying my hand (and/or thumb) at indoor gardening.  Sometime after Christmas, I planted four bulbs of paperwhite narcissus.  The first tiny blossom popped open today with a promise of more to come.
