An Odd Tulip Out

A reminder to members of City Daily Photo that the theme day for June is Shadow And Highlight.

Every once in awhile, one finds a different colour among the tulips. Such is the case in the second shot.

  11. I guess once in awhile a different color gets thrown in the red bin by accident. I see the odd sign in your photos and I imagine most of these beds are labeled which I appreciate.

  13. @Kate: they certainly are popular.

    @Jennifer: if you should go, go during the week. The weekends are crazy.

    @Gnome: there are a whole lot of them.

    @Denise: it does, yes. I've got a couple, at least, of more of those to come.

    @Red: I do like photographing the signs when possible. In the above, it's easy to tell which of the three are which.

    @Francisco: thank you!

  19. Very nice serie of the tulips again. I always admire that kind of lonely tulips as in your second photo.

  20. You have a good eye. I would have probably missed that wee yellow flower amidst all the other fantastic tulips!

  21. @Sharon: they're fun to find.

    @Beth: alas, the tulips themselves are at an end. Heat tends to do them in, and we've got that now.

    @Cloudia: thank you!

    @Marleen: indeed.

    @Pamela: that happens.

    @Tex: as do I.

    @Jan: thanks!

    @Lowell: they have a way of standing out, I find.

  24. Wow! That's a lot if tulips. Does anything go in those gardens after the tulips fade?

    ReplyDelete
  25. The yellow ones always stand out!

  26. @Bill: it must, yes!

    @Debs: it's quite a pretty one.

    @Susan: yes, they'll be digging up the bulbs and replacing them with flowers that stay around through the fall, then replanting bulbs in October.

    @Bill: indeed!

    @Orvokki: thanks!

    @Norma: they do, yes.
