    Tulips are my favorite flower, and this always happens to them! I thought it was because of the light thing, too!

      Yes, apparently this is a common phenomenon! I had no idea.

    I have my eye on your beautiful book covers and that stripe candle holder

    Hi! I've heard you're supposed to put just a teeny tiny amount of water for tulips. If you put a lot of water in the vase, they grow and do that crazy thing. So, in case you want to keep them "civilized", you can try tiny amount of water – and apparently even some ice cubes with the drop of water in the bottom of the vase. – Heidi

    I love that you always have flowers. I need to do this. Also, the "Tulip UFO"? Hilarious! Hehe.

    Those flowers are such a pretty shade… I need to do a better job at having fresh flowers in the house more often!

    Even the tulip UFO has a strange sort of elegance about it! They are lovely flowers – great choice of colour too :)

    1. Jackie {York Avenue} says: March 19, 2014

      I agree Bernice! I like them straight but I don't mind them bent. Elegant is a good word for them!

    Tulips grow once in water, no matter how much you give them. Here in Holland we put maybe 5 inches or so in (always cold) and then add as necessary. They start out straight and then relax as the days go by….they look much nicer "au natural" like yours have become than straight and tall. Lovely color…and I bet they started from here!
