So it’s Friday, and as they say: We’ve made it! These days wherever I go I see tulips in all colours for sale. They are grown in greenhouses, and smaller than usual tulips. Now that the snow melted I can see my tulips coming out, just! So they still need at least a few months to bloom.
Meaning of the Color of Tulips
Tulips are symbolic of fame and perfect love. The symbolic meanings also change with the colour 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 coloured 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.
Tulips as Heralds of Spring
Tulips also mean eternal life and 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.
I wish you a happy Friday 🙂
