Mellow Yellow

Hope everyone is having a Mellow Yellow Day. This weeks theme in colors is going to be Miscellaneous. Today, we are going to take a look at Yellow Tulips.
The Tulip belongs to the Liliaceae family and is in the genus of Tulipa. It is a perennial, bulbous plant that blooms in a variety of colors. Tulips originated in Persia and Turkey. They spread throughout Europe and became common in the Netherlands by the 17th century. It is believed the first tulips grown in the United States was in Massachusetts from 1847 to 1865.
The Yellow Tulip once meant unrelenting love. To give one a yellow tulip was a declaration of your love. Over the years, the meaning has evolved. Today, a Yellow Tulip symbolizes cheerfulness. It is often used in bouquets for Easter, symbolizing the fertility of Spring. It is also a tradition to give Yellow Tulips upon the birth of a baby boy.
