Another macro shot of tulip petals Mom,
This overall picture causes the tulip to appear somewhat sensuous, and I wondered if that was behind the name.
Nope - named after the Persian word turban, of which they are said to resemble.
(I think I disagree but okay)
I always thought tulips originated in the Netherlands, not the Middle East.
A lesson for the day.
