~ Longing For The Innocence And Renewal Of Spring ~


These gorgeous ballerina tulips and dragonflies remind me of the spring that is to come.

The word Tulip is thought to be a corruption of the Turkish word 'tulbend' for turban. The Tulip was introduced by a famous Austrian biologist Carolus Clusius. Tulips plants belong to the genus Tulipa, in the lily family, Liliaceae. Tulips bloom on bulbous plants, with large, showy flowers with six petals. There are around 100 species of Tulips, which actually came from the Central Asia where they grew wild. Turkish growers first cultivated tulips as early as 1,000 AD.

Beyond the higher of the pixie kind, most pixies can be described as angular, sometime indiscernible from male or female. Doors to the fae are often called sĂ­dhe which means door.
