Tulips

I bought these tulips at Costco.  The first day they were only green leaves.  Within 2 days, the tulips had bloomed - it was magical!

Tulips are like roses, they are gorgeous but do not last very long. I still will take them any day.

The tulips look stunning. I didn't know you could buy them like that (well, I don't think you can here anyway).

Woof! If Keeper reads this she will go crazy wanting tulips!

Now I wonder: can dogs eat them?
