I love flowers in general and always was dreaming and admiring gorgeous endless gardens. I always tried to grow many flowers. My balconies were always full with flowers during my Uni years….. Living on rest does not make it easy to grow may flowers, and I am exited when the time comes to own a place and have a dream garden….
But enough of daydreaming! When you can’t have a garden why not illustrate flowers to make a room nicer?
Living in Brisbane you are not far from Toowoomba – City of flowers…. Here you find amazing flowers and fabulous Tulips……
So here we go …. inspired by one of my favourite flowers… TULIPS! I love them, and always did….
I made a print available here to celebrate tulips , fashion and Easter! It makes great gift for a flower enthusiast or somebody who enjoys the beauty of simple things.
Do you actually know the meaning of this particular flower, the tulip? If not here we go:
Tulips come from Persia, ( Iran ) and were introduced in the 16th century tot Turkey and finally in the 17th century to the Netherlands, where still today they are so popular that the country grows and exports them like crazy. The fields of tulips are the best in the Netherlands.
Also if you are in love with creating tulips in lace, here is a Romanian Point Lace kit for you!
The rival of the tulip is the classic Rose. Tulips are truly special. The inner centre of the tulip is, black and velvet like. It represents a lover;s heart since the 11th century. To receive a bouquet of tulips it stands for grace and elegance. When it comes to colours…. I love them all!
