[Tom, I had to bring the flowers to my nose to smell any scent on these. There's no scent wafting through the kitchen as I expected from your earlier comment.]

...I haven't grown them in years, perhaps they have found varieties that doesn't have such a heavy fragrance. Enjoy them.

Now that's how to show a progression of flowers opening! Beautiful! Interesting that their scent isn't permeating as they used to do. Thanks for sharing their beauty!!

I have never grown paper whites, Marcia, so this progression was interesting to see. Even if there is no scent, the blooms are lovely.

Gorgeous photos, Marcia! They are such beautiful flowers and even more beautiful when you enjoy them in winter.

I could sense your excitement as you took each photograph of its blooming. Well worth the wait.
