Tulips have been my favorite flower since I was a child. Purple tulips are the most beautiful. I brought my friend Val purple tulips when she was in the hospital. Now they'll always be a bittersweet memory.
Each spring I wait impatiently for my lilac bushes to bloom. I like to cut some to bring in the house but they don't seem to last very long once cut. Anyone have any tricks to making cut lilac last longer?
