Tulip Season is Really Over

When I shop at Traders Joes I will often pick up some fresh flowers for Mama Wordbones. The flower display greets you as soon as you enter the store and it makes buying flowers seem like the natural thing to do.

The trouble is, I’ve had mixed success with their flowers. Sometimes, the flowers will last for almost a week. Sometimes, I’m lucky to get three good days. Last week, they didn’t even make it that long.

Less than 24 hours after bringing these tulips home, they drooped right down to the countertop. I guess tulip season really is over now.
