Tulips are so sexy.
Mysterious, silky, plump… all those iridescent petals in shades of blush, beckoning and curling more open in the vase each day…
We’ve been pulling them from the fields green, since they store well out of the ground (we harvest them with the bulbs still attached). After bringing them into the workshop, I sift through the the stems on the table, desperately curious to know what colors they’ll reveal in the vase. I’m excited for the customer who gets to see each one unfold.
I took the ones with crooked stems home—even drooping, they fill the room with riotous color and perfume. I’ve been seduced!
