Cutting and Arranging Spring Tulips from the Garden

So much is growing around my Bedford, New York farm - this week, the tulips are in full bloom.

Every year, I always plant a variety of tulips in my garden. For this season, I planted a small selection in rows specifically for cutting. Tulips, which come in a variety of shapes and sizes, are perennial plants that open up each spring. They're grown for their graceful leaves and bright, cheery blooms. Some are traditional and cup-shaped, some have fringed petals, others have pointed ones, and some are full of fanciful ruffles. Yesterday, we cut trays of gorgeous tulip flowers to display in my home.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
