All of nature provides us with something we need. Trees release oxygen for us to breathe, and their fruits provide sustenance.
Flowers, on the other hand, seem to exist solely for our enjoyment, whether it be from their enchanting fragrance, stunning colors, or sheer beauty. Despite their delicate construction, they persevere through rain, wind, and storms, passing on the baton of life in an endless cycle of rebirth and decay.
The tulip, originating in Persia and Turkey, has played a significant cultural role and was once highly prized, especially the purple tulip, symbolizing royalty, wealth, and abundance. They also hold significance as representations of the 11th wedding anniversary. Their stories are numerous, and if you pay close attention, they reveal the secrets they hold.
Shh... If you're quiet enough and listen carefully, you might hear their hidden tales…
