In this design I tried to use wintery January colors and thought of forced tulip bulbs to get some gardening in during the cold months. I also tried forcing paperwhites one year and it worked wonderfully and they were beautiful, but the fragrance was too strong for the house. I couldn't believe how strong it was. Hyacinths are another favorite to force and they are potent too. Fun winter projects - stitching and forcing bulbs... Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
