Here are photos of the tulips my neighbor gave me. The blue vase is about 8" tall and the green one is 6" tall. That will help to give you some idea of how big the tulip heads are.
The green vase is sitting on my kitchen table, and you get to see our horribly out-of-date wallpaper and old-fashioned wainscoting. The whole kitchen needs an extreme makeover, but the only way that is going to get done is if ABC decides to reward me for being such an inveterate viewer! Oh, maybe one of you will nominate my kitchen for Oprah's "worst kitchen in America" contest. Then I'd get one of those hunky carpenters to change it all for free!!See the round bowl hanging on the wall? That is my first baby bowl; it has the alphabet painted around the inside rim. (and of course you realize it is nearly an antique!)
The other photo is in my living room; a quarter turn to the right from the table in front of the windows, which you saw in a previous photo. The color is off a bit, since the walls are buttercream yellow in real life, and here they look like they have a greenish tint. If I tweak the colors to look more realistic, it changes the color of the tulips too much.
