Today's Flowers: Factory Tulips

IMG 6128

The Mardi Gras anastasia mums faded to a strangely invisible brown this week. I knew they had given up the ghost when I smelled that strong, peppery aroma of raked earth. Out they went and in came the factory tulips from the warehouse store. They smell like nothing at the moment, but they are very pretty. The red and orange-yellow of the flowers made me think of summer sunsets and ever ygood thing that goes with that. Here's to spring and the factories that do good things to take the sting out of a weekend shortened by one hour for no apparent or useful reason.

Live well and be good.

  8. Just because they came from a factory doesn't mean they weren't grown with the same love you would give our own bulbs.

    I hope you are okay with all that flooding in your area.

  17. I like tulips no matter where they come from especially this time of year. I always forget to plant more bulbs in the fall so I rely on those factories. As a matter of fact I bought some violas knowing they come from some flower factory. They made them blooms so early. I just love those tiny smiling faces.

  18. All tulips are named after a famous person. It's an honour when a bulb grower grows a new kind of tulip and names it after you. I wonder what this tulip is called! It's beautiful!
