Tantalizing tulips



No, I didn't grow them. (Right, in 106-degree days for months on end in a drought in Texas)

But I did come home with them. I adopted them from my local grocery store yesterday. They were all closed when I put them in the vase. A few hours later, much to my amazement - these beautiful double tulips opened. I can't stop staring at them.

They are so pretty and perky and cheerful in my kitchen. Sunshine in a vase.

Cheers!

Lisa - love bringing store-bought signs of spring inside the house!

Cyndy - Sure wish I could grow tulips. Even species kind would be eaten by deer outside fence and dog inside fence!

Love them! I agree, wonderful way to celebrate spring with sunshine indoors. And if you can't grow 'em thanks to deer & dear Dakota, let someone else do it for you & enjoy the wonder.

Jayne -- Thanks, they are so cheerful!

Gail - Thanks for asking. His surgery went well and we're waiting for pathology results this week.

Linda/CTG - I like that - let someone else do the gardening work while I sit back and reap the benefits...nah!

Mothernaturesgarden - We sure do have some warmth - 80F today, can you believe it?!
