A Turkish love letter.
Tulip bulbs are grown in all colors, including a purple so deep that it looks black. And by planting a selection of varieties of this perennial, you can enjoy their beauty from early spring through early summer.
Just as in the seventeenth-century tulipmania, when the fervent desire for fancy tulips seized wealthy speculators in a bubble market, today the world turns to Dutch auctioneers for buying and selling their prized blooms.
Back in the 18th century, a “Turkish love letter” required no ink or paper. It consisted of a small purse containing several objects. Each represented a different word or phrase, so the purse might contain a pearl mixed with cloves, a tulip, a piece of soap, coal, and a straw.
The tulip is a short stem: 25-35 cm
