My husband is not one for giving Valentine's Day gifts
so to make myself feel better about being
(most likely) flowerless on February 14th,
I purchased myself a container of tulips.
I thought these were a good buy at Costco for $10.
Not only do I get flowers now but a nice glass vase and
bulbs to plant to hopefully bloom Spring 2013
In the warmth of the sunny window,
those flowers started opening up pretty quickly.
Maybe I should have moved them to a darker location
or maybe once a tulip starts to open, it just goes quick.
Full blown here...
...and then exploding to hardly even looking like a tulip...
...but still pretty even in this stage.
Well, the tulips didn't even make it to Valentine's Day
but I enjoyed watching them open up day by day.
I'll plant the bulbs see the pink tulip blooms again when they
spring from the ground in about 12 months.
