Tag Archives | tulips


I haven’t joined in on the Nature in the Home series for a while. Things have been a bit crazy here – SO much work, teething baby, school holidays, family visiting from out of town.

So, this week’s theme is Simple. I have never bought myself tulips before, they are one of my favourite flowers (along with peonies, but I couldn’t bring myself to pay R150 for 5 peonies?!). The lavender was picked from our garden (v simple) and I like the simplicity of tulips – no thorns or extra leaves or fussy bits.


I’ve heard there are clever tricks to get the stalks to stand upright again after they’ve started to droop. Can anyone let me know what these are?
