Every spring I marvel at all the beautiful varieties and colours of tulips that sprout up in our front garden. I can’t take credit for these (wish I could though), as they were planted before we moved here. I do however still LOVE them, and I wish they lastest longer than just a couple weeks each spring.
Aren’t these just gorgeous???
Fun Fact #1: The tulip is native to Persia, and first came to Europe in 1559 from Turkey. The name “tulip” was derived from a language translating mix-up, and is actually based on the Turkish word for turban.
They are so pretty in full bloom. I also adore the white daffodils that wanted to join the tulip party.
While I am not a gardener (at all), and often complain about weeding, I do love how a neatly manicured garden can set the tone for the whole feel of a house. A lovely garden is like make up for your house. Lol.
Fun Fact #4: There are over 3000 varieties of tulips.
That’s it for today’s post everyone. Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back again on Tuesday.
