It’s Tulip Time!

It’s Tulip Time!

Out in my yard the daffodils are blooming, the crocus and scillia are nodding their heads in the breeze, the Virginia Bluebells are peeking up out of the ground, and the tulips are making their appearance. I’m so so happy that it’s tulip time out in the yard! Although they’re not blooming yet, I thought I’d share some of my tulip photos from the past year, along with some fun tulip facts!

They did not originate in Holland and first started blooming there in 1594.


Tulip-budsThe word “tulip” comes from the Persian word “delband” which means turban.
