Today is the first day of Spring and I couldn't be happier. Although Gotham still feels wintry and frigid, I know that balmier weather is on its way and with it, a plethora of gorgeous tulips. By the end of this month the 60,000 tulip bulbs planted on the Park Avenue malls will be in bloom washing the avenue with bursts of yellow and red.
I love to pick up a few bright bunches of tulips at the corner bodega--their sunny hues are sure to brighten any room!
Because tulips balance on precariously thin stems, its necessary to use a a vase that will hold them up. Tulipieres, tall decorative vases with small holes, were invented just for this use and make it easy to create a beautiful arrangement in no time.
How are you celebrating the first day of Spring?
