tulip

Carpe Diem #1364 Tian Shan Mountains (Northern route)

native tulips
growing in the mountain’s shadow

I just finished reading Tulipomania by Mike Dash. This book gives the history of the cultivating, buying, and selling of tulips in the 16th and 17th centuries. The original tulip, that bears little resemblance to the varieties we know today, was discovered by the Turks in Central Asia.
