I love tulips. But those are gone. Gone in time. You should have seen them a week ago. They were glancing at home. But they are not at home. Where do they come from?
I really don’t know. May be Holland. Indeed several tulip varieties are coming from my home country. But the first one?
Tulips are originally from the Ottoman Empire (nowadays Turkey). They were imported to the Netherlands in the 16th century. When Carolus Clusius wrote the first important work on tulips in 1592, the flowers became so popular that his garden was regularly attacked and his flower bulbs disappeared.
This one disappeared too.
