Pictures of Tulips from Modena, Italy

Last week I had this post Macro of… almost all of you gave the correct answer as Tulip. There were some answers like: Rose, Lotus, Hibiscus… I am now tempted to post macros of those flowers in my future posts.

Tulips from Modena

Here is the larger scene of the Tulip flowers I got to see in a park of Modena, Italy. How I often wish that I could grow them in my pots, but unfortunately Bangalore doesn’t have a favorable climate for it to grow. Sharing with you a poem I came across on Tulips, written by: Linda Hogeland. Each word is so perfect for it.

Tulips from Modena

 

TULIPS

The tulip has great strength as it pokes up from the sod

The strong green leaf surrounds the bud and acts as a façade
Then as the leaves spread open and the colored heads appear
The beauty of God’s planning often cause my eyes to tear
The jagged edge is lacy as it gently opens wide
And as it does,… you will be blessed …by the beauty found inside
The stamen stands so proudly in the center as on cue
And the colors vary greatly in the star shaped colored hue
Their splendor is a statement, yet in a simple way

They give a casual beauty to a lovely new spring dayI clip each color gently as I picture my display

I gather quite a bounty and they form a big bouquet
