Give me tulips over roses any day of the week; don’t get me wrong, roses are beautiful, heady and some are even real show-stoppers. But there’s just something about tulips that make me happy. I think it’s because they’re some of the first flowers to bloom in the spring after the long winters here in central Indiana. We usually force several pots of bulbs this time of year to bring a bit of spring colors indoors but our pots are a bit behind schedule at the moment. So, The Professor purchased some cut tulips and my son sent a dozen for Valentine’s Day this past week – the house was bursting with color – bring on Spring!
