Spring tulips

tulips

I got the prettiest tulips on Friday evening, and they’ve opened up really pretty. I love how they lighten up the room and put a smile on my face when I walk through the door.

My friend who’s a florist gave me an awesome tip about tulips: leave the plastic wrapping around the tulips when you first put them in a vase with water, take the plastic off after about 30 minutes. This helps keep the tulips strong and straight (instead of bending over the edges of the vase). Works like a charm! Also, snip off the stems slightly so they’re not dried out and a fresh flow of water can go into them.
