How to keep your Tulips from flopping over

This time of year I crave colour.  Everything is white, grey and brown.  One way to brighten my surroundings is colourful spring flowers.  I did a post a while back about forcing bulbs.

One of my favourite spring flowers is the Tulip.  The only problem with them, is they tend to droop over in the vase.

A florist friend of mine gave me a tip years ago and it really works.  After you have freshly cut and arranged your tulips, toss in a couple of copper pennies.  Try it.  It really does work.
