I was surprised to discover in one of your previous columns that one could do so much to take care of peonies! I look forward to applying your advice. I have recently grown very fond of tulips. I’d be grateful if you could share some tips on how to treat these flowers.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write in! Tulips, like peonies, are another favorite flower of mine, and like peonies, there are many ways you can care for them to get the most time with them. I’m answering this question a bit late as I wanted to grab some tulips, and write down my tips as I cared for my very own. It’s been a week, and they’re still going strong. I hope this helps!
When I was kid I would visit my paternal grandparents pretty regularly. My grandmother, Doris Eleanor, was the epitome of 1950s housewifery. She would even wear her dresses, three-strand pearl necklace, and heels when they went on vacation, including camping. She was invested fully in her family, and loved baking for all of us. She was such a lovely person and I’m sad to say she’s no longer with us, but my memories live on. A favorite memory is when I would arrive to my grandparents house and my grandmother would have strawberry shortcake waiting for me because she knew it was my favorite. Now when summer hits, I have to have something strawberry. The cake for my baby shower last summer was strawberry, and my birthday cakes are always strawberry. So when thinking about a Fourth of July dessert, I immediately thought of strawberries, and of my grandmother’s shortcake, but with the ultimate lazy girl twist.
