turbans

Amsterdam’s blooming with tulips everywhere now! Here’s a picture I took in a busy crossing on my way home from work

turbans

Quote from Wikipedia: The word tulip, which earlier appeared in English in forms such as tulipa or tulipant, entered the language by way of French: tulipe and its obsolete form tulipan or by way of Modern Latin tulīpa, from Ottoman Turkish tülbend (“muslin” or “gauze”), and is ultimately derived from the Persian: دلبند‎ delband (“Turban”), this name being applied because of a perceived resemblance of the shape of a tulip flower to that of a turban.


alba

I keep Lamprocapnos spectabilis Alba flowers on my balcony, and right now they’re in full bloom. Love spring! 😀

A.k.a. old-fashioned bleeding-heart, Venus's car, Lady in a bath, Dutchman's trousers or Lyre-flower.

snowflake

I can’t recall ever seen one of these before, but perhaps that’s due to the fact that I didn’t pay much attention before I started photographing.. I thought it was a kind of tall snowdrop, but  after some research I found it’s called a Spring Snowflake. (Or maybe a Summer snowflake, I don’t know how to tell them apart.)

orange

Orange flowers symbolize expansion, growth, and warmth. It is also a color of friendship and community. And the national color of The Netherlands!
