Tulips & Tulip Trees !!
« on: 05/02/2007 22:06:54 »
Dear Sirs , Dear Madams, Dear Sir-Mams, Dear Confused !


This is a Tulip Tree:






This is some Tulips :





Nice eh ?....one thing that springs to mind is that the Tulip Tree is a tree and that the Tulips are flowers !!...which is nice !!

Are there any botanical things in common between the two or are the only things in common , the names ?

Me wants to know cos me wantsto know.

hugs & Shmishes and Luff

Neil

 I do believe the tulip tree has very large similar blooms when it blooms.. This thread made me think of Tiny Tim!



Artist: Tim Tiny
Song: Tiptoe Through The Tulips
Album:
[" " CD]

Tiptoe through the window
By the window, that is where I'll be
Come tiptoe through the tulips with me

Oh, tiptoe from the garden
By the garden of the willow tree
And tiptoe through the tulips with me

Knee deep in flowers we'll stray
We'll keep the showers away
And if I kiss you in the garden, in the moonlight
Will you pardon me?
And tiptoe through the tulips with me

I can only put it down to that strange vortex  I walked into a short while ago that must have transported me back to 2004 and then again to bring me back. I had just put it down to inclement weather !!!..yes...this is all true !!
