no foolin'

Did you know that when you put fresh cut tulips in a vase that they continue to grow?

It's true!



Day one...

...and I kept these a little longer than usual.




Day three...

...getting long and lanky.



Day five....

Are you supposed to trim these?


Happy April Fool's Day!

If only that would have worked for me.......I'd have stood in water for days to be tall and lanky!!!

I did not know this and yet have watched tulips get whacky like that and never thought too much about it.

Good to know!!!

So, you two having egg salad for lunch these days???

Did you know if you drop a penny in the tulip's water they will not lean way over like that? Works--try it with your next bouquet!
