Let’s Hear About a Year in the Life of a Tulip
Ah, that magical flower – the tulip.
At one point in history, it was a currency! People were so desperate to get their hands on those precious petals, that they paid vast sums just to own a rare variety.
Today, we’ve calmed down a bit and the tulip’s once again available to all. Young or old, rich or poor, the tulip has become something more than pretty decoration, or money. It’s a special symbol of Spring and signals the end of Winter.
Besides, that little pop of vibrant colour is just what we need to cheer us all up after a gloomy, cooped-up Winter season. It’s colour therapy at its best! And the mind-body connection can’t be ignored. When we see bright yellows, reds, pinks, oranges and those long green leaves, we feel instantly cheered and uplifted. It’s no wonder that a variety of tulip was recently recognised as the flower of peace and friendship. But, ever wonder what the flowers are thinking? What goes on in the life of a tulip? How do they go from an unremarkable bulb to the flower we love?
Here’s what a tulip would tell us about a year in our fields…
