Not quite like my view of a couple years ago…

At that time our frequent contributor “Andrew” wrote:

Quemadmodum vero tulipae, quae sub vesperam ingruentem se claudunt, sole illustri panduntur; ita virtus et eruditio, post Dei benedictionem, floret laetius.

    I always think of tulips’ role in the first real economic crash market. The “Great Tulip Crash of 1637″, or “Tulipomania!”

    sorry, but I’m reminded of the T.U.L.I.P. rule: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calvinism ;-)

    Did you know that flowers were given names associated with Mary from medieval times? Hence, the name “Mary Gardens.” The name for the tulip is Our Lady’s Prayer. http://www.faithandflowers.com/marygardens.asp
