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.

It’s Not Butter!

Looks like butter.  Has the silkiness and pretty color of butter but it’s not butter!

Maybe that is how it got its name – a Julia Child Rose.   Appropriately named, don’t you think?
