Tulips: you will say that they look delicate, they only last 3 days and they come around in the spring!
Tulips: I will say that they are string as hell, they last as long as a rose, if not longer and they come around in December!
So don’t let the tulips fool you! They are my best friends!

And I say all this, while we are preparing frantically for one of our largest Floral Design Classes this year, Dutch Tulips.
