Tulip Time

Tulip time.FZ200

The brightness of youth
Yearning to mature
And give birth

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
