Tulip Time with a Flip

It’s tulip time! It’s tulip time! Yes, tulips now fill the markets and it’s time for you to fill your home with these springtime beauties. “Wait a minute”, you say. “Those flowers in the photograph aren’t tulips”. Yes, these gorgeous striped blooms are tulips. Each petal has been carefully re-flexed to give the flower a fresh look – almost like a poppy but much more long-lasting. If you want to try this, buy your favorite fresh tulips. Enjoy them for a day or two and then pop the petals back. It’s important to wait for the flowers to age slightly. Too fresh and the petal will crack. Which of course, begs the question: Can flowers be too fresh? No, you just enjoy them as they age and then they are just right!
