I have a feeling that there is a withering flowers photo series developing.

Have you heard of tulipomania? It reminds me of the background story of an enjoyable historical fiction novel I read some time ago, but I cannot recall the title or author.

EDIT April 12th: Thanks to a well-read commenter in the next post, I now know the name of that novel: Early Joys by Philippa Gregory.
