Tulips


As it happens, I didn't choose a very good bunch of tulips to record, since these creamy ones simply grow taller and show no sign of drooping at all.

I heard a flower arranger say once that tulips are the only flowers which continue to grow after they have been cut. Comparing this photograph with the first one I took last week, I see how much longer the stems are now - the flower heads are well above the leaves.

But droop? Not this bunch of soldiers!

  • They'll have to go eventually, Gill! Most folks would call them goos value for money. Now I know the way to make flowers last: buy them with the intention of recording them going over and they'll be everlasting...

  • Gill,
    I had a bunch like this, they remained in tight bud the whole time and then just went manky on the edges. (yes that is a technical term)
    very disappointing for you
