For a big boost of color, visit your favorite garden or home center, floral shop and supermarket and purchase cheerful pots of forced tulips — and other bulbs — that have been coaxed into bloom just for you!
Chose pots with young tight buds showing a bit of color. Open flowers will fade too fast. At home, slip the pot into a prettier pot just a bit larger, or lift the bulbs and soil from the plastic container and transfer to a different flower pot or cachepot that fits your décor.
Another option? Bring home a big bouquet of tulips and use your imagination to display your colorful, luxurious bounty to brighten any gloom day.
