My Valentine's Flowers

I got flowers from Tim this Valentine's Day-- although not the typical bouquet or vase of roses.  He got me this awesome vase of tulip bulbs. I wish I would have taken a picture when he first brought them home. There was no sign of flower buds, just the shoots. A few days later, though, you could see the small red bud poking out through the green stems.  A couple more days later, the red flowers were in full bloom!

Now I just need to read the instructions for moving them outside to keep blooming every year! I think this may be better than stem cut roses in a vase. Now I get to enjoy these Valentine's Day flowers every year!
