  • PEACH TULIP

  • I love tulips.  They are so pure and simple.  The sun shinning through their rich colored petals seems the essence of new life and the heart of spring.

  • This from Wikipedia
  • "In Persia, to give a red tulip was to declare your love. The black center of the red tulip was said to represent the lover's heart, burned to a coal by love's passion. To give a yellow tulip was to declare your love hopelessly and utterly."
  • Here is alink to a very fine poem by Sylvia Plath about tulips she received in the hospital.
