Gin Din

From the Charlotte paper via the Seattle Times and Cornell University

or round and round we go: for those of you potting up paperwhites, here is the skinny on adding booze to your bulbs so click on Seattle Times. The “be all end all” reference is from Cornell so I would be inclined to try this technique…….if I grew paperwhites, which i don’t, because I can’t stand the cloying, overwhelming, headache-inducing, room-filling fragrance which everyone else on the planet ADORES. And I don’t keep gin around, because in my personal history book, it makes people meaner than cat piss. However mean that is.

I will be content to lean over my amaryllis and whisper, “Grow, dammit.” The vodka stays in my glass.
