The other night my mom arrived with a trunk full of tulips.
Blooming in many beautiful shades.
Still attached to their bulbs.
In actuality, the blooms were part of a greenhouse dump load on a friend's property. What a pitiful site to see piles of tulips, in their prime, left in a field to die. Dramatic 'huh? Anyway, mom saved them. We cut many to bring in and filled vases for each room in the house. Sweet spring refreshment.
