When I was in Atlanta visiting my daughter early April, we went to the Gainesville branch of the Atlanta botanical gardens, and I took lots of photos with my iPhone. The one worthy of posting to my shops was this gorgeous open pink tulip above. The tulips were the stars of the show at that time and this one was the star of all the tulips—at least to me.
Tulips originated centuries again ago in Persia and Turkey, but once they traveled to Europe, the Netherlands became recognized as the tulip capital of the world. The meaning of tulips is Perfect Love. How nice is that? Tulips are a favorite at Easter, given cut or in pots.
When my daughter’s mother-in-law and I arrived back home from our Atlanta trip, her daughter gifted us each with a bouquet of cut purple and yellow tulips. What a thoughtful way to welcome us home. My tulips lasted for two weeks!
I was inspired by the red tulip and purple anemone beds at the botanical gardens, and I came home and created a pattern which is available on products in my shops. You can check it out here.
Have a colorful day!
