T...

...is for Tulip...


...a picture I took earlier this year when the tulips were in flower in my garden.  A sign of spring, an easily recognised and much loved flower.  They originate from Persia where they naturally grow, mountainous areas with a temperate climate.   In the language of flowers they represent elegance, grace, perfect love and a declaration of love depending on what you read.  When my youngest saw these in flower this year she declared that 'they were so beautiful it was breaking her heart right out'.  If you want to grow these wonderful flowers in your own space, now is the time to be sowing the bulbs ready for next Spring.

  3. Beautiful picture. I just bought my bulbs this week and am going to put them in window boxes for the spring. I saw them grown like this in switzerland last year and they looked wonderful against the wood of the house.
