Fading Tulips


Took some pics of fading tulips. Still looking nice though, and kind of interesting.  - at least for my eyes. Shot plenty of them next to window to get more day light. I didn't use tripod nor anything to soften the incoming natural light.

What do we know about tulips:
  • tulips are definitely one of the world's most popular fresh-cut flowers
  • there're around 75 wild species of tulips
  • in the gardens tulips are blooming in spring
  • tulips are often associated to the Netherlands
  • tulip is a national flower of Turkey and Afghanistan
  • tulips are eatable












How to take care of fresh-cut tulips:
  • cut 0,5cm from the base of the stems. Use a small pair of clippers and cut the stems at an angle. This will help them soal up water from the vase.
  • Remove extra leaves from the base of the stems. The leaves could start rotting if soaked into the water and cause the flowers to go limp before their time.
  • Fill the vase with cold water. Thatbwill keepmthe stems fresh and crisp, while warm water would cause them to become weak and soggy.
  • Add some flower food. This will greatly lengthen flowers' lifespan and keep them standing tall and looking perky for as long as possible.
  • Keep the vase out of the sun. Otherwise, the tulips will wilt in the heat.
