We're spoilt for choice at this time of year with all the gorgeous flowers that are in the shops. I always start the year off with Daffs but tulips are always close on their heels.
The flowers come in such a wide array of colours that I'm spoilt for choice and it's hard to make a decision when making my purchase. This time I opted for this gorgeous red and yellow variety and though I usually stick a pin through the stems just underneath the flowers, a tip I learnt which keeps the flowers standing upright, I didn't on this occasion and they're still standing tall. Often, tulips will go rather droopy, but I think that just adds to their charm.
Daffodils are still available in the shops, usually just 99p a bunch in the supermarkets, and these tulips were just £1.79. A small price to pay when they bring so much enjoyment and brighten up the living room.
