The gift that keeps on giving!

Spent Bulbs, 6 x 6


A bowl of Paperwhite Narcissus arrived on my doorstep at Christmastime from my dear friend Jennifer. They bloomed and filled the room with gorgeous flowers... and then died back. When I pulled them up, I was thrilled anew. I think I love the bulbs themselves just as much as the flowers! They have such great shapes and hold a sweet promise of blooms to come! I used them in my still life class today and had to come home and paint them myself.

Hi Laurel,

The colour in this reveals your delight and works magically. I like how the round out and the curve of the
bulb on the table make the painting
look so generous and welcoming.

Super.
