Should the Pink Tulips stay or Go?



I had planned that those pink tulips were supposed to show halfway through the Daffodils and the start of the grape hyacinths... but timing can be tough when you buy bulbs that just say 'early', lol...
SO... should they be clipped and stuffed into a vases to be enjoyed indoors... or should I leave them alone?

    I'd keep them. I love the way the light pink helps balance out and frame the hotter colors. It makes a great mix.

    @Shelley @ Sow and Dipity I agree with the others leave them in the garden. They are evenly dispersed across the garden, it looks great. It sort of reminds me of a Monet painting. Nicely done! Thanks for sharing.

    Don't you hate it when you have one idea and the plants have another?!

    It is SO pretty the way it looks. You'll just have to go outside to enjoy them. :) Have a chair you could put outside and enjoy them from?

    I absolutely agree with the others. Leave them and enjoy the beauty. You did a great job planting them and nature provided the rest. Beautiful!!!!!

    I'm different than everyone else. My sense of color seems to take away from the beauty of the pink tulips with the other colors so much more vibrant hued. I would probably cut them and make a wonderful arrangement and possibly transplant them where they would be a shining star instead of almost lost in a sea of color. Of course I LOVE I am biased! But the haphazard cottage look is good too.....

    I have a hard time cutting the flowers in my garden so I would have to say stay!

    I would let them stay. In nature colors are not chosen specifically and everything is perfect together. I love a pop of color and if you really can't stand it, enjoy a vase of fresh cut tulips in the house.

    I would have to leave them outside. I am allergic to Tulips, my favorite flower, so that would be the reason I would leave them outside.

    I would leave them. This is a really beautiful spring combination. I planted this terrific one last fall - for early spring: And I planted this other one for late spring blooms: Awaiting the results :)
