Asters and Daisies

Flowers were buy one get one free at the store last week!  You know what that means . . .

Thirsty Tulips

Ever wonder what tulips look like after they run out of water?

A few days ago my tulips drooped dramatically overnight which led me to discover that the vase was completely void of water.  A fresh supply perked them right up in under thirty minutes . . . but in a distinctly different hue!  The brief lack of water must have affected something about their pigmentation.  I promise the difference isn’t from a change in white balance!

Sadly, the fresh water only bought them a few more days — into the trash they went this morning.

I made it into the grocery store myself the other day and couldn’t help but buy some tulips.  It’s nice to have a little bit of spring inside, especially since Mother Nature doesn’t want to grant my wish — it snowed twice last week, and there’s another big storm on the way 😦
