Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
These are gorgeous!
That's a very cool sculpture.
love the yellow tulips - not quite so sure about the sculpture
Can't imagine walking around town with all those beautiful tulips. But it would be fun and I also like those sculptures. Looks like they're made of ceramic material.
It's magical how quickly the bulbs flower when they are ready.
It's the first time I see a scultura of a tulip.Tomás.
Love your Tulip Shots !
Those are houses with spring views! What a delight it must be to open your windows to this sight in the morning!
Enjoy the many colors!Gone too fast. Occupy that camera.
There's nothing wrong with these beautiful colours, William, it's spring at its best!
I miss the tulip fest! They are so beautiful!!! :)PS: I just finished reading a book called The Great Escape: A Canadian Story by Ted Barris. It's another recounting of the escape of Canadian POWs during WWII. But it's fantastically told and I'm sure you'd enjoy it.
Elaine: thanks!Stuart: I liked it.Gerald: I am seeing that reaction from others.Lowell: I believe they are ceramic.EG: just two days can work wonders.Tomas: it is a pleasure to show them.Cindy: thank you!Ciel: they do get great views!Birdman: it is a short season.Jan: I agree!
I'm really enjoying this.Jane x
The mass tulip images look fabulous when you pull them right in William, each one standing so straight...
I am so amazed at this sea of color the tulips have created. It's just beautiful.
This post is another feast for the eye!
Another series of beautiful images...
Beautiful colors, great series, William!
Really beautiful! And so nice to see Princess Juliana there on the panel :)
