I thought maybe they were stretching out in search of sunlight (as plants are wont to do), and I felt a little bad so I tried putting them in front of my window. They didn’t seem to stretch uniformly towards the light though, so not sure what this craziness is all about. It certainly adds a new dimension to your typical vase of flowers!
While picking flowers for the week, I went with tulips for the first time – and now I have no idea why I never got them before! They’re such a beautiful purple color and so quintessentially spring. Plus they’ve entertained me by being completely strange. Here’s how they started off, all proper and upright (bad cell phone pic, sorry):
Here they are the next morning:
Aaaaand here they are now, running wild:
It’s like a tulip UFO!
