My Mom used to grow Paperwhites every year for Christmas. I’m ashamed to admit that I used to complain about the smell. Now that I am grown and have a family myself, I have continued the tradition and truthfully, it wouldn’t feel like Christmas without them. I adore their scent today and I am happy to report that my daughter does as well. Maybe she will carry on the tradition her Uma created.Photography Beth Horta for Sweet Sabelle.
