Bring a pretty Christmas rose indoors You can miss the Christmas rose* when it flowers. Its papery blooms appear at exactly the time you stop venturing out: midwinter. Which is a shame as its beauty is just what is needed to dispel gloom.
Create a serene winter tableau with this simple arrangement: birch bark wrapped around glass cylinders filled with plants. Trimmings from the holiday tree and scented geranium leaves snipped from a houseplant accentuate the amaryllis blooms.
