In the midst of winter there is still floral beauty here at Our Fairfield Home and Garden thanks to tropical houseplants and forced bulbs. The crimson red of Anthurium strikes a note and cheers the garden room. Tete a Tete narcissus bulbs, planted in fall at week intervals in anticipation of winter, are now sunny yellow accents in the kitchen window. Paperwhites and amaryllis, with their tall stems entwined, perform a duet as sweet hyacinths perfume the air.
Although less abundant than the spring and summer flowers, these little beauties give ease to a gardener’s heart as she waits for spring.
