Tulips originated in Turkey, and in the days of the Ottoman Empire, were a beloved symbol. I have always loved stories of the sultan's garden--thousands of tulips, lit by lanterns at night, with music and food--so there should be tulips in Instanbul. Look for tulips in the architecture, tiles, art. They should be everywhere.

lucky you.

I love the top picture and the way the black tulips get smaller and closer together as they recede into the distance.

Thanks you all, I also love the first pic it' a little unreal.

Swamprose: what you say is true, tulip is traditionally used in many different situations.
I was lucky because it is the flowering season.

P.S. sorry for my short communications because of my ABC English!

You could suffer my ABC Italian. Your photos speak eloquently.

Is the top pic a pic of a painting or pic?
