Red And Gold

The tulip beds at Commissioner's Park are the center of attention this time of year. Some of you might remember this portion of the park from last year.





Over at my writer's page today I'm paying tribute to the King Of The Blues.

  13. @Linda: thanks!

    @Kay: the planters who do this in the fall do wonderful work.

    @Jen: I certainly think so.

    @Marianne: here is the best place for them. There are quite a number of different locations, but this park has the most beds.

    @Orvokki: and they bring out the crowds!

    @Revrunner: it's quite a work force that does this in the fall.

    @Janis: that could take awhile.

    @EG: you should come on up.

    @Hilary: so do I!

    @Lois: thanks! I've been trying to photograph as many different varieties as I can. I do tend to photograph red a lot.

    @Tex: they definitely are.

    @Jane and Chris: they seem to work well mixed like that.

    @Birdman: there'll never be another one like him.

    @Sharon: thanks!
