On Saturday, the kids and I went to the botanical gardens and saw hundreds of tulips! Yellow, white, purple, pink, and red ones lined the pathways. Some of them were almost as tall as the kids.
I was just bummed that I didn't have my camera but was happy to, at least, snap these with my phone. I sent the one of the kids to my mom, which she loved and texted back that tulips are very symbolic. Today, I googled "tulips meaning" and found this -
Meaning of the Color of Tulips - I learned something new!
Tulips are symbolic of fame and perfect love. The symbolic meanings also change with the color of the tulips. Red tulips mean "believe me" and are a declaration of true love. Variegated tulips mean "you have beautiful eyes." Yellow tulips mean "there's sunshine in your smile" and cheerful thoughts. Cream colored tulips mean "I will love you forever." White tulips symbolize heaven, newness and purity. Purple tulips symbolize royalty. Pink tulips mean affection and caring. Orange tulips mean energy, enthusiasm, desire, and passion.
I'm hoping we can go back this weekend and take some more shots. That is, if everyone is well. Strep throat is on the home front right now...again. ugh. Fingers crossed that it passes quickly so we can take be there for the reopening of the butterfly garden too.
What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to take some time for Beauty Detours like these.
Springtime totally rocks.
