Once upon a time in Holland, a single tulip bulb sold for $20,000. Even more unbelievable? The circumstances that caused it, nearly brought down the entire Dutch economy! Tulips are some of the most colorful, unusual and breathtakingly beautiful flowers known to man.
In this full color photo book you’ll find some of the most beautiful tulips in the Midwest. Each year between, April and May, all of the planters, gardens, and medians of every Chicago boulevard between Michigan Avenue and State Street are filled with tulips. Not just any kind of tulips, but varieties and colors rarely seen outside of a botanical garden.
Mother/daughter screenwriters and photographers Laura & Janet Greenwald spent the last few tulip seasons in a tiny Chicago neighborhood called Streeterville, just off the Magnificent Mile. Join them as they chronicle their journey of Chicago’s incredible blooms.
