Walking Through Tulips

To bloom every spring
Was her duty.
The red tulip lived for that only season.”
– Manisha Gautam

 

I love tulips, and for me, it would always mean the beginning of spring. How I would love to go when it is in full bloom in Holland, but I guess I have to content myself with the Tulip Festival that is held every year in the Dandenong Mountain Ranges in Melbourne.

I though that the origin of tulips is Holland, but tulips originally came from Iran, Afghanistan and Kazakhstan and ended up in Turkey.

    I wish you make it to Keukenhof some year. It’s probably what’s best for tulips. Istanbul also has many tulip beds in the spring.
