Flowers at Home - Tulips

When I take flowers home, it's usually the stuff that's too old to sell. Not too old to enjoy, but I don't want to sell anything that isn't going to give my customers the maximum vase life. So I grabbed this bunch of tulips the other day to take home. They were expensive, probably why no one bought them, but here they are 8 days old and aren't they stunning?!

I had to trim them twice, 5 inches total easily because they were just too tall for the vase I wanted to put them in. And look how they've opened?! And I'm not exaggerating to say the blossoms are the size of jumbo eggs. :-)

I think I'm going to grab a bunch of tulips from the supermarket tomorrow and we can compare and contrast the difference between those and my fancy extra grade ones from New Jersey. Then we'll both know if they're worth it!

PS The camellia from last week did break my heart; the bud fell off before it opened. :-( Maybe next time...
