Tulips as Heralds of Spring
Tulips in bloom are heralds of spring. Along with crocuses and daffodils, tulips are the first flowers to blossom each year, sometimes while there is still snow on the ground nearby.
In the language of flowers, tulips have their own meaning and symbolism. In general the tulip flowers mean perfect love and a true, passionate lover. They means fame, passion and romance.
And of course, tulip flowers are always associated with spring.
Blooming in a multitude of colors, they are a vibrant, timeless symbol of spring.
Based on colors tulip flowers have different meanings too. Red tulip flowers are generally interpreted to mean true love. Yellow tulips, which earlier suggested hopeless love, has gone through a change of meaning. Today they represent cheerful thoughts and sunshine. Orange tulip flowers symbolize warmth, happiness and fascination. White tulip flowers ask for forgiveness. Pink tulip flowers symbolize happiness and confidence. Purple tulip flowers are associated with royalty. Tulip flowers have a center that is velvet in texture and almost black in color, and this is said to represent the heart of a lover that is fired with passion. Blotched and striped flowers represent beautiful eyes.
Tulips are planted in the fall but are often Wedding Flowers for Spring Weddings. Celebrate the new life springing to life around you and include Tulips in your Wedding Bouquets.

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
- Did you know that trees are the longest living organisms on earth?
One (a single) tree produces up to 260 pounds of oxygen a year. That is more than enough to supply oxygen to a family of four people. Make that a few thousand trees, and you’ve got an oxygen supply for a whole town
· Over the course of 50 years, a single tree can generate $31,250 of oxygen, provide $62,000 worth of air pollution control, recycle $37,500 worth of water, and control $31,500 worth of soil erosion.
