Beautiful Tulips from Our Garden

A lot of tulips from our garden is still blooming. Some are gone now but some are still in full bloom. Others are still on the process of blooming. I hope I am not quite complicated here. I am just happy since few weeks ago after seeing a lot of tulips blooming in our garden. If I could only wish that they will bloom the whole year but I guess only a miracle could do it. We have more varieties and colors this year than the past years. We planted more last year during Fall time and now they are here spreading beauty to our garden. It is a nice feeling seeing them again. Our hearts are dancing everytime we take a look at them.

Here are some kinds of tulips fresh from our garden!

the tulips above are the same ones you see in our header template here. They always come back every year. We simply love nature and we love flowers too!

ORIGIN OF THE NAME

Although tulips are associated with Holland, commercial cultivation of the flower began in the Ottoman Empire. The tulip, or lale (from Persian لاله, lâleh) as it is also called in Iran and Turkey, is a flower indigenous to a vast area encompassing parts of Africa, Asia, and Europe. The word tulip, which earlier appeared in English in forms such as tulipa or tulipant, entered the language by way of French tulipe and its obsolete form tulipan or by way of Modern Latin tulīpa, from Ottoman Turkish tülbend (“muslin” or “gauze”), and is ultimately derived from the Persian language dulband (“turban”). (The English word turban, first recorded in English in the 16th century, is a cognate.)

the last two images here are the new varieties we planted from last year’s Fall season. We love it!

    My only regret is that tulips don’t last long enough, you know. But when they show up, they beautify the entire neighborhood.

    Those orange and yellow tulips are beauties and they look great as your banner. The Dutch word for turban is tulband, very close to the Persian word.
