It was my mom’s birthday on Wednesday so on my way to work I stopped by the grocery store to buy her flowers. I brought my own vase and instead of paying a lot of moolah for a pre-made bouquet, I was just going to make my own. Daffodils were only $2 a bunch and there were all sorts of different colored tulips. I decided on a simple arrangement of daffodils and purple tulips. When I went to pay for them, the young woman behind the counter told me that daffodils are toxic to other flowers, so if you mix them, the other flowers will die.
- Tulips grow even after you cut them, which is why the purple ones in the photo look taller than the yellow — they must have grown faster
- Tulips like pennies, so drop one in the vase not just for good luck
- If a tulip is drooping, poke a pinhole just below the bloom and it should perk up
