I want to make sure to have some pretty flowers in the middle of winter so today I potted some up for forcing. It is so easy and really makes a difference when the cold, long winter is beginning to take its toll.

It is so simple, simply put some bulbs in pots and put in a protected area of the yard. Cover heavy with mulch after a good frost and leave them alone. I like to bring pots indoors at 2-3 week intervals beginning around Christmas for flowers in late January and into spring. It sure cheers me up to have fresh flowers when the snow is beginning to get that ugly grey color.

This is such a good idea! Such a nice way to brighten the dull days of winter! Will have to pick up some bulbs to experiment with!
