Tulips Galore

Vibrant Purple Tulips Vased

If you live in the snow belt, there is no doubt if you are not a fan of snow and cold, you are ready for Spring to appear. One good sign that spring is nearing is the arrival of Tulips. When tulips begin to arrive in abundance to florist in the northern regions, spring is not far behind, about a month and a half away actually. But it does give hope for warmer days to near.

The majority of early Tulips come in from Holland, and if you have ever been to Holland and seen the fields of Tulips you were in awe of their beauty I am sure. If you never have been but love tulips, you may want to put Holland on your places to visit list!

Tulips are the most popular spring flower and symbolize imagination, dreams, a perfect lover, a declaration of love, and fame. To me, they have always symbolized romantic love partially due to their name “tu” – two, “lips” (self-explanatory).

Different colors of tulips also have their own meaning, much like roses. The color and meaning of the different tulips are as listed:
PURPLE: Undying love, Royalty
VARIEGATED: Beautiful eyes; Enchantment
RED: Declaration of love; Believe me;
PINK: Caring; Hopeless love; Perfect love; sunshine in a smile
WHITE: Longing, and forgiveness

To me, tulips are one of perfection. Their simplistic nature makes them almost exotic in a sense and a wonderful gift to receive and send.
