I think the reason tulips are so popular is because they come in so many different colors. They really don't last that long, and you know what? They are pretty unreliable bulbs for perennial flowers! The next year's flowers will almost always be smaller, and in a few years you'll be sorry you even planted them. I think I've found just a couple of varieties that came back well, year after year.
That's why I like Dianthus instead. The foliage is low and always looks neat and tidy. And they come in a variety of colors. Who cares if they're tiny? At least they keep blooming!
Which brings me to the stamp set I used this week for my cards. Marigold Moments is not just all about Marigolds! If you aren't a big fan of blazing orange and gold, then these are easy to turn into the sweetest little pinks, carnations, or even zinnias! Make them any color you want.
