Tulips from Holland

We bought some purple tulips from Holland.

Sometimes I think I’ll wait until tulips bloom in our yard, planted by previous owners of our home.   Yet, we live in The Town of Holland!

It was in 1846, when the first Dutch settlers came here.

I know this because I am looking at a TIMELINE, a chapter written by June VerVelde in a history book.   Here is the full reference:   Oostburg Wisconsin, Haven of Hope In a New Land.  Copyright 2001  by Oostburg Historical Society.

  1. How beautiful! Our Washington State daughter sends tulips in the spring, from Lyden, Washington where they have huge tulip farms. The colors are amazing–my favorite is deep purple. Tulips must love the wet, warmish places near an ocean! 🙂
