If you think tulips come from Holland then think again. Although they are grown by the boat load over there now they in fact originated from Turkey and the botanical name Tulipa comes from the Turkish for Turban. Turkish gentlemen wore a tulip in their turbans as the stem is flexible to turn around the head.
Now tulips are one of those flowers, you either love them or you don't. We love them of course but many people think that they flop, they don't their stems naturally twist, bend and grow towards the sun. They can grow up to and inch a day so don't right them off as being towards the end of their life, embrace the fact they are unique. Short musings today folks. Bye for now! AH xx
