Freedom 75 tulips

A Ray of Hope in this Pandemic: Today is Freedom 75 Day, commemorating the liberation of the Netherlands by our Canadian soldiers in 1944 and 1945 during the Second World War. Last fall, the Kingdom of the Netherlands kindly sent King’s College School 75 Liberation tulips – specially-bred, beautiful, bright orange tulips – to help our students learn about this important event in the history of our two countries. We planted those tulips last fall just as the snows were starting, and now, on May the 5th, the bulbs are just starting to bloom – a ray of hope indeed.

Despite the snow over the last few days, the Freedom 75 tulip bulbs are flourishing and flowering – such a lovely sign of renewal and hope.
