The blooming paperwhites

It is that time of year again when you look out into the yard and see these beautiful bundles of white flowers.

These paperwhites belonged to my great-grandmother Moore and my grandmother gave me these bulbs over 30 years ago. We have moved them and separated them numerous times and shared them with a few family members. They are in several locations in our yard for us to enjoy.

It is so nice to have something out of my great grandmothers yards planted in my yard.

When it’s cold and there is not much blooming these are a joy to see pop out of the ground. Paperwhites are a bulb type flower that grows in clusters but the bulbs tend to grow deep.

When photographing paperwhites you need to use a macro lens to show off how delicate these blooms truly are. These flowers need the perfect lighting to show off their beauty to much sun blows out the white of the blooms so it is better to take pics early a.m. or on an overcast day.

Fine art, photography and paperwhites all go hand in hand.
