Perfect Love, Our Tulip
Not too elegant not too romantic, the Tulip, as with many things in the Western World was originally misnamed by the Europeans. The name derives from the Turkish word for turban tülbend. Europeans thought the flower looked like the Ottoman’s turbans. In turn, so they named it. Often the tulip has been said to hold the same hue of red that “evokes the blood of martyrs and the fire of love.” The Hearlds of Spring Tulips are often the first flower to bloom each year. In 1636–1637 marked a period known as Tulip Mania in the Netherlands. During this time, tulips were considered a symbol of status and wealth and were traded much like currency. Understandable seeing as, the tulip is one of the most beautiful flowers in the world and is perfect for any occasion.
