narcissus

 

 

The paperwhite bulbs I planted bloomed beautifully during the holidays. Their perfume is intoxicating - overwhelming at times! They are on their last legs now, this was taken in their prime (they were over 2 feet tall!). I've heard that a very weak solution of alcohol will encourage blooms and retard the growth of the stalks. I'll have to try that next season. Beer and wine are too sugary apparently, but gin and vodka are fine, as is rubbing alcohol. This is what I've heard. : ) More research will be necessary before I start tending bar with my plants though. lol

 

I've been experimenting with Topaz Impressions. This is my second attempt at a digital painting. Hope you like!
