Probably the last tulip picture for this season. I took this a couple of weeks ago, and now the petals begin to fall off and the leaves begin to wither away..

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.
