    Just to Share

    Saturday, these were shut-tight buds - I was buying an inexpensive bunch of flowers as a welcome home for Emma's mom as she came back from Florida. I ended up giving her some yellow tulips that were at least blossoming, so these stayed here ....

    Last July's sunshine
    With a buttery perfume
    Brightens a sore heart

    Set in cobalt glass
    The colors, rich, pure, and strong
    Will not be ignored

    Lovely! Thank you, Karen.

    Just a tip

    If you are buying cut tulips choose the ones that are almost closed. Poke a hole right through the stem with a thin needle or pin, just below the flower and then put in water the same as usual keeping the water fresh. The tulips will stand tall, open fully and last longer. That is of course unless you prefer the droopy look. I've been doing that for years after a tip from my brother-in-law, an avid gardener.
