My mother-in-law bought me these tulips last week, and now that they’re about ready to trash, I’m a little sad to see them go. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying them, and have been particularly impressed that they haven’t drooped at all. The trick? Ten copper pennies thrown into the vase.

Tulips before they fully opened

I took this shot before they’d fully opened – I think I was still skeptical that they’d remain upright long enough for me to get any other photos.


A day or two later, and they were just perfect….and not at all droopy.

So pretty!

Whenever we have fresh cut flowers they serve as a reminder of how much I love them…I really should treat myself and have them in the house more often.
