There is perhaps no flower whose blooms are as welcome as the tulip. After the cold, dreary winter, it is one of the first harbingers of spring. Its pale green stem rising up out of the ground promises that sunnier, warmer days lie ahead. Is there any more hopeful message a flower could give? Tulips run the gamut from the exotic, highly prized (and priced) varieties to the standard bunch you can pick up at the supermarket. But even the most mundane tulips pack a visual punch when bunched in a pretty vase in your kitchen.
Tulip arrangements are magical because they change from day to day—one day the stems arc gracefully in unison, the next they lean away from one another, greedy for more territory, hungry for more sun. This dynamism, along with their vibrant hues and elegant shapes, makes tulips a beloved favorite. So bring on spring, and bring on the tulips!
