Last week, during the most recent house showing, I purchased a few bundles of fresh tulips to
lure in prospective buyers make our house look welcoming.
Wouldn't you know it? An hour left before the showing and my tulips are drooping so fast they are kissing the countertops. A case of the Droopsies!
Now a little bit of droop in a tulip bouquet is lovely, but instead of giving the charming suggestion to "Buy this house!" my tulips were depressing the prospective buyers out the door.
Google found me the Droopicitus cure.
Just take a pin and pierce a hole in the stem about an inch from the head.
Presto chango! My tulips have been happily droop free for the past week.
I can't believe I didn't know this before!
The next buyer who comes to see our house will have the indescribable urge to purchase our house...
and they won't even know its all the tulip's fault.
