The tulips in our yard are opening up, and I love seeing all the colors – especially since I forgot exactly what I planted. My dilemma: let them beautify the yard, or cut a few/some/all of them and enjoy them in a vase? What do you do? (Maybe next fall I'll simply plant a ton of extra bulbs, so there's plenty for both indoors and out.)
Hi guys. Sorry for the radio silence! I was dedicating most of my time to filling holiday orders, and then was down in Los Angeles part of last week visiting family. Today I started settling back into the normal routine and thought about things I haven't done much of in the past six weeks – like bringing home fresh flowers. Surprisingly, there were tulips available. It's awfully nice to have a reminder of spring on these cold, pale days.
When I planted some hellebores in the yard a few months ago, it was hard to pick a color because there were so many options. (Even black!) I misplaced the plant marker, so I'm not sure of the exact variety I have, but it's a delicate blend of light green and mauve that looks a little different from every angle.
