Tulips to cheer you up


Koon Yew Yin 11 July 2020

I always like flowers. Readers might recall that I posted my mis-adventure in planting Dendrobium cut orchids flowers to export to Japan about 20years ago. Although I could produce enough of cut flowers but I could find enough of cargo space to transport to Japan. All the cargo space was reserved for computer chips at that time. Moreover, there were not so many planes to Japan at that time. 

  

 In my previous house fronting the 8th hole Royal Perak Golf Club, I had a fairly large garden around my house. But, when I built my new house fronting the Meru Golf Course, I found the land was too small for a garden. So, I constructed a vertical garden alongside the dividing wall as shown above.   

Flowers are a great way to brighten up people, especially during this lockdown due to Covid 19 pandemic. Flowers can also brighten up a dull room or turn a garden into a veritable rainbow. A good bouquet can turn any frown upside down. Rosesfor example, are the ultimate expression of love and affection. They are fragrant and sweet-smelling wonders that can make dark and dank forests seem warm. Of all the different flowers in the world, tulips are, perhaps, the loveliest. They come in an unending range of colours, shapes, and sizes. After all, there are over 75 different types of tulips! They pour across massive fields streaking them with blues, pinks, and yellows. Some of the most popular gardens in the world are home to the greatest collections of tulips. Tulips can truly make the world a much more colourful place. Here are some of the most beautiful tulips you can find spread across the globe. 

I visited Keukenhof Gardens in Holland

About 40 years ago, when I first retired as IJM Corporation Bhd executive director, I visited Keukenhof Gardens in Holland

The flower park has 32 hectares of flowers. There are also spectacular flower shows, surprising inspirational gardens, unique artworks and wonderful events. If you want to know everything about the Dutch tulips, you can visit the Tulipomania exhibition in the Juliana Pavilion in the park.
