During the first half of the 17th century tulip bulbs were sold at outrageous prices in the Netherlands. This tulipomania got so out of hand that the government banned the trade. The manuscript nursery catalogue “Verzameling van een meenigte tulipaanen, naar het leven geteekend met hunne naamen, en swaarte der bollen, zoo als die publicq verkogt zijn, te Haarlem in den jaare A. 1637, door P. Cos, bloemist te Haarlem” contains 54 gouaches of tulips. The 3 tulips on the puzzle are the Spinnekop, Gel en rot van Leijen and Viseroij. The prices for which the bulbs were sold are mentioned in Dutch guilders.

It's cold in Kansas City, with snow and ice on the ground. These beautiful tulips are a reminder that Spring will come!
