There is a park where I pass every morning when I drop of and pick up my daughter. The park have assorted tulips bulbs planted and will grow two times in a year, spring and autumn. When they are in full bloom they look crisps and healthy. Tulip origins from Turkey and was brought to Holland by the colonialist where they made it extensive and made it world popular. These beautiful flower only grow in four season countries but cut ones are available in tropical countries by imports too.
