Sunshine On A Cloudy Day

Hi everyone!

I don't know what the weather has been like in your neck of the woods these past few weeks, but in Bluebird-land the weather has been cloudy, bleak, dreary, etc., etc.  However, a bright spot in these mid-winter doldrums is the arrival of tulips at the grocery store!

At $4.99 a bunch, they are a breath of spring and a sign of warm days to come (for a cheap price)!

When I brought them home, my bouquet stood like soldiers in my little, vintage enamel pitcher...

By morning, they were all droopy, as you see in these pictures.  Boo to that!  But have no fear...

A few seconds on Google, and my tulips are on their way to be restored to standing at attention (I think)! There are a gazillion tips to preventing and/or correcting tulip droop online, so I suggest if you need advice on this "just Google" and your problem will be solved (hopefully)!

Drooping or not, the jolt of color is definitely sunshine on a cloudy day.

Thanks for stopping by,
