tulips of the spring in alanya

the flowers has blossomed in the spring season. including the tulips.
there are tulips grown at the park near to the beach of alanya.
i saw 3 beautiful colors of tulips which are red, white, and yellow. this spring (2009) is the first time i saw tulips in the reality. usually i saw it in the picture or in the tv programme. tulips are really beautiful.

people around the world thinks that tulips come from holland. actually, tulips are native to central asia and turkey. in the 16th century they were brought to holland from turkey and quickly became widely popular. today tulips are cultivated in holland in a great numbers and in huge fields. dutch bulbs, including tulips and daffodils are exported all around the world so people thinks that its originated from there as wel. in fact many cultivated vaieties were widely grown in turkey long before they were introduced to european gardens.
