It feels like it's been snowing here in southeast Michigan for nearly a week and today, as I sit her writing this we're bracing for a possible ice storm.  Winter has just arrived and I'm already waiting for spring.  There are no flowers in sight except for the bulbs I've planted indoors.  The only one that has bloomed is the paperwhite so far.  I have an amaryllis bulb that I planted before Thanksgiving but, it hasn't bloomed yet. My original plan was for it to bloom so that I could use it in a design for Christmas.  That's the wonderful and frustrating part about flowers, like everything in nature - it's unpredictable.  I still have a few days left before Christmas so, I'm still hoping that the amaryllis blooms in time.  I'll let you know how it turns out.  I'm going to take a little time off from the blog so that I can spend time with my family and friends during the holidays, so you won't be hearing from me for a while.  I hope that all of you enjoy holidays and I'll see you in the new year.  I'm ready to say goodbye to 2013.  I can't wait for a fresh start so, bring it on 2014.  I'm ready for you.
