Tulips

Day 50 / 365

STOP! Tulips Time.    🙂

Interesting Fact:  During WWII, some people in the Netherlands were forced to eat tulips because there wasn’t any other food. “Bread made from tulips is not very good … like wet sawdust” according to a Dutch man who grew up on a tulip farm during the war. (Also, part of the bulb is poisonous, apparently.) ( http://alloveralbany.com/archive/2011/05/06/20-facts-about-tulips )

  1. I love the photo! I almost can smell them!
    Sadly, I already read a while ago, somewhere I can’t remember, about people esting tulips during IIWW. :/

  2. What scrumptious tulips. Can tulips be scrumptious? I don’t know but it’s the word that sprang to mind when I saw them. So silky and pink and the light is lovely.

      • Thanks. I kept waiting, but didn’t hear, so I took a chance. If you don’t have time to do the challenge, not to worry. You will still have some checking out your fine site and photos.

      • Thank you very much for this. Between work , family and doing the 365 project it’s hard to take on another responsibility. But thank you anyway. 🙂 Happy Blogging.

  3. Can’t Wait for Spring to see tulips again! My favorite flowers for spring!
