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.

xoxo a.d.
