OOOOOOOO-aaahhhhhhhh How wonderfully beautiful! I'm talking about the blossomly awesome sock club shipment I received today. I don't know how you do it...but I love my sock club shipments.

Tulips are my favorite flowers. I have had the wonderful experience of traveling to Holland and enjoying the fields upon fields of tulips. What a sight to behold. It is my reminder that after Winter, Spring is coming and gives me a sense of being refreshed and renewed along with the rest of nature.

Kingdom: Plantae
Division: Magnoliophyta
Class: Liliopsida
Order: Liliales
Family: Liliaceae
Genus: Tulipa

Surprisingly, the tulip did not originate in Holland but in the Ottoman Empire and is indigenous to Turkey and other parts of Central Asia.

I love them because they are beatiful, come in so many interesting colors and varieties and almost everyone can recognize it when they see it. Classy, sassy, cool, and calming.
