Yesterday my wife bought tulips. Closed yellow tulips. I said, let me help you take them out of the packages. I broke one. Its bulb fell into the sink.

Three toothpicks piercing the side of the tulip allowed me to immerse the bulb vertically in a small candlestick holder. Today, the tulip is blooming - stemless.

This is not derash - nor is my faith in tulips.
