well in my house it is! i bought these branches last week at trader joes which had tiny buds all over them. i decided to give them a whirl. i put them in vases with water and began the wait. bloom baby bloom! two days ago the process began. i love them them. not only the look, but the SMELL!! i want to know what kind of tree these lovelies came from. divine. if you see them in your local TJ's...pick them up.
