Tulip Tip

Last weekend we hosted some dear friends for dinner and they brought me a stunning bunch of red tulips.  Sue had recently learned a little tip about tulips from her Dutch friend and it works so well I just had to share it!  I am sure everyone has experienced droopy tulips before, but preventing this disappointing occurrence is a mere pin prick away!  When placing the fresh cut tulips in a vase insert a pin through the stem just below the flower head and pull it out.  The resulting little hole prevents the flowers from absorbing too much water and falling over.  It works like a charm!
