You are a brave woman Lori! Are you aware that there are some, here and there (Holland) who have tulip in their blood? They spin off stories, facts, with slips of the tongue that are astonishing. Bulbsonline.org is a great resource, if you haven't got tulip in your veins. (did you read the Botany of Desire about tulips?) Ted, my boss, wouldn't because it describes his family's folly, back then. Down the road from me, Washington Bulb has the biggest tulip production in the world. Scary because tourists consider it an amusement, not realizing that some live and work here.
