After a week, the tulips are ebullient, twisty-stemmed, and nearly 9 inches taller. We have a bonus room at the top of the stairs where I have all of my stuff: computer, books, files, yarn. Coming up the stairs after work, all you see is tulips.
The room has huge windows and gets tons of sun, so the cut tulips just thrive and grown and bend during the day.
Such great flowers.
