Tulips Plus

Tulips plus..

In soft light
The goblets glow
As yonder comes the dawn

Tulips originated in Turkey getting their name from the Turkish word "tulbend" which means turban. Tulips were thought to look like the turbans. (Hats that were worn in Turkey at that time.) I have always mistakenly associated the origin of Tulips with Holland. Tulips were introduced to Holland from Persia. ~ Bernard
