My first 3D flower postcard!

Here are some tulip facts:

The name tulip came from the word turbin, an Ottoman Turkish word. 

Despite being famously cultivated in Netherlands, tulips are originally from Central Asia and Turkey.

Tulips can be eaten, (or at least some parts of it). They taste like lettuce or beans.

The most sought after tulip is the Queen of the Night, a tulip which is very deep purple in color.

Dank u Monique for sending me this card!

Sharing this with Tina and Mona for the weekend blooms:
