Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!
I love paperwhites!
I usually start to force paperwhites right after Thanksgiving so I have them blooming during Christmas but this year the holidays just seemed to sneak up on me and so I didn't plant these until right after Christmas!
And they are already blooming! I think it because it's been so cold here in California and the heater has been running non-stop! It sort of forced them into bloom really quickly!
It's been down-right chilly here! Down to about 32 degrees during the night and the highs only make it to the low 50s! That's cold for California!
I went hiking on Sunday afternoon and there were puddles on the trail that were frozen ice at 2:00pm! I've never seen that before here...ever!!! It's only snowed here twice in my life. The first time I was only a year old so I've only seen photos of my mom holding me in the snow. The second time was when I was 15. Every year since then I always hope that we will get snow again. The way the weather is this year it may happen! Although it's supposed to warm up and be in the mid 60s!
I won't be here this weekend to feel that warmer weather though. I'm going to Lake Tahoe to go skiing with my girlfriend! I haven't been skiing since I had kids...it's probably been about 28 years! I used to be pretty good at it so I'm hoping it's like riding a bike and it all comes back to me! I hope to share some photos next week!
