A Vintage Reflection
Photograph - Photography/mixed Media
Originally from Persia and Turkey, tulips were brought to Europe in the 16th century, where they got their common name from the Turkish word for gauze, reflecting the turban-like appearance of a tulip in full bloom. By the 17th century, the popularity of tulips, particularly in the Netherlands, became so great that the price of a single bulb soared to new heights, causing markets to crash and putting into motion tulip mania.
Tulips are symbolic of fame and perfect love. The symbolic meanings also change with the color of the tulips. Red tulips mean believe me and are a declaration of true love. Variegated tulips mean you have beautiful eyes. Yellow tulips mean there's sunshine in your smile and cheerful thoughts. Cream colored tulips mean I will love you forever. White tulips symbolize heaven, newness and purity. Purple tulips symbolize royalty. Pink tulips mean affection and caring. Orange tulips mean energy, enthusiasm, desire, and passion.
