Signs of Spring.

Tulips are always one of the signs that spring is coming. Before the tulip plant pops out of the ground in your garden, they are in all the grocery stores as beautiful cut bouquets. A tulip may appear delicate because of it's soft stem, but they are resilient and can last weeks in an arrangement. Did you know tulip stems keep growing in water even after being cut from it's root? The stem has to be cut at the right length to keep the shape of an arrangement for the duration of it's display time. Tulips have a subtle sweet scent that blends well with many other aromatic flowers. I love the combination of tulip and freesia. <3

Another beautiful combination is tulips and peonies.
