It has been so long since I’ve been near flowers that I thought they were special flowers. I need to go sit by B.

LOLOLOL!!! – Don’t you love knowing people like B?! (I’m still laughing!)

Haha! They do look rare and exotic!

I’ve always loved tulips when they die. It’s like another phaase of their life. And they still stand up so straight and tall.

When I looked at the thumbnail, I thought the (dead) leaf was Stella’s ear. I was so excited. Bummer.

I too like the bizarre shapes that dying tulips make – actually much more interesting than the live flowers…

How exotic! Tulipis rigimortis.

Ms. Cranky Pants makes me laugh!

Tulips are almost out of season and I’ve hardly bought any this year! What happened!?!

Put little identifying signs by your flowers. When the tulips are in their prime they get a TULIPS sign. Today the sign should read AMARYLLIS, because I’d buy that.
Next week: MULCH.

That’s when I think tulips are at their best…right before the petals fall off, they look like they’re wearing ruffled ballerina skirts

Remedial friends are the best.

I love friends who don’t judge dead plants 🙂

Dang, her in Chicago, our tulips are still lookin’ good. But then, we have loads of greet tomatoes when the first Fall frost hits…
I’ll trade dead tulips in May for red Beefsteaks in October. 🙂

It makes me feel less alone to know there are others who allow their once beautiful flowers turn into scary plants from a Tim Burton movie. The other evening my husband asked me if he dog farted and I realized it wasn’t the dog but the sewer water in the vase holding the gladiolas I was having a hard time letting go of.

Look like exotic flowers to me. Seems like I remember thinking that when I had dead tulips once.
