The bulbs were planted in January by the gardeners of Castello di Pralormo in collaboration with the gardeners of the municipality of Alba and are colouring some flower beds in a message of positivity and strength which, in these difficult times, gives hope and confidence, such as it happens in nature with flowers that bloom every year.
At the following link you can admire a short video showing the update of the photographs of the tulip blooms of the City of Alba.
“The donation of the bulbs by the castellan was a gesture of great generosity, very welcome to the municipal administration – declares the Mayor of Alba Carlo Bo -. The bright colours of tulips are an example of hope and optimism, even more so in this period of emergency.
They represent an auspicious symbol for the city that will return to bloom with splendour after a long winter of protection, just as happened to the bulbs. I hope that the collaboration with Consolata Pralormo will continue in the future, to create synergies of beauty that unite Alba with the territory.
From 28th March the spectacular flowering of Messer Tulipano is told through the social channels of the event to allow the public to visit, staying at home, the park of Castello di Pralormo and the over 100,000 tulips and daffodils in full beauty: a renewed plantation with black tulips, parrot tulips, viridiflora, lily flower, frills with fringed tips and many other colourful varieties of flowers.
Following the Facebook profiles (https://www.facebook.com/Messer.Tulipano.Pralormo/) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/messertulipano_official/), every day you can discover the blooms of tulips “walking virtually “in the Castle park, accompanied by Consolata Pralormo who will tell anecdotes, curiosities, the meaning of each flower and the botanical secrets of Pralormo.
“I know you would have come to the Castle of Pralormo, as you have done in these 20 years … – says Consolata Pralormo -. I imagine your sadness and concern these days and for this I would like to give you a little beauty and hope. I don’t want to keep just for me the wonder that is blooming in the Castle (home of our family for 400 years) and in the park. ” Among the first blooms that herald spring and anticipate the arrival of tulips, Consolata Pralormo recounts “the yellow forsythia bushes, the fruit trees in bloom that look like white clouds, the avenue of Japanese cherry trees with pink mottled flowers, the rosemary with blue flowers; in the undergrowth there are crocus in pastel colours, spontaneous violets, daffodils in ivory, yellow and orange tones. The squirrels come out, the birds chirp happy to have food again; in the park you can see the robin, the wren, the great tit, the black-billed blackbird, the jay with the blue feathers “.
In this way it will be possible to share a little beauty with everyone through the spectacle and the wonder of the flowery park, the result of the great commitment and work of a whole year.
