Tulip Abstract

Tulip abstract.

Resilient petals
From wind and rain
Engineering marvel

The word tulip is derived from a Persian word called delband, which means turban. It is generally believed that it was called this due to the turban-shaped nature of the flower. However, this might have been a translation error as it was fashionable to wear tulips on turbans at the time. ~ Bernard
