There was an article in one of our newspapers about a tulip I'll be looking for amid the tulip beds. Canada 150 is a new type of tulip developed in collaboration with Dutch tulip growers. It's a white and red flower meant to mark the upcoming 150th anniversary of the country, and for those of us in Canada, the bulbs will be available for planting in the fall, so that they'll be blooming for the anniversary year.
Here are more tulip shots, taken early this past Saturday evening down at Dow's Lake, with the last shot being from a nearby patch of daffodils.
Tulpen gibt es in vielen Farben rote und weiße sind meine Favoriten.ReplyDelete
Send some that you have many. (Just kidding)-ReplyDelete
Fantastic shots, William, I love tulips !ReplyDelete
Wonderful, I mostly like your 3rd and 4th photo.ReplyDelete
Excelente e belas fotografias destas magnificas tulipas.ReplyDelete
Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.
I especially like those deep red ones! Maybe you could send me some. I don't think they grow too well here, though. Must be too hot.ReplyDelete
Absolutely gorgeous, especially the tulips...ReplyDelete
So hard to believe it is just now tulip and daffodil time. I love it when a rogue bulb populates a bed. A dot of yellow here, unexpected red there...ReplyDelete
Is that daffodil interlopers I see there in the last shot William :) tres gorgeous tulips!ReplyDelete
@Tomas: we have lots.
@Karl: so do I.
@Francisco: thank you!
@Geoff: I agree.
@Janis: it happens.
@Grace: thanks! Yes, the daffs are here.
É uma flor majestosa e lindaReplyDelete
As fotos confirmam esta grandiosidade
Um ótimo dia
I do love the tulips! Keep 'em coming!ReplyDelete
I've been looking forward to seeing these beauties and I'm not disappointed. Gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Wow! I love your tulips pics. So colourful! What a feast to my eyes.ReplyDelete
Beautiful, William! I especially love your first, second and fourth photos!ReplyDelete
@Halcyon: I'll be photographing quite a lot of them over the next few days.
@Sharon: I always love seeing them.
@Nancy: they have such a variety of colour.
@Linda: thank you!
Beautiful displays! Your photos are great!ReplyDelete
I like beds solid colors better but that's only my opinion.ReplyDelete
With the cool weather you may get to enjoy these tulips for a long time this spring! Beautiful, William!ReplyDelete
looks like some one is or has been working lots. gorgeous colors. so cheerful and happy! ( ;ReplyDelete
Beautiful displays. The new tulip is to be the flower for Canada. The color of Canada's flag. Some how they have crossed it with some kind of Magic planting. I thought it looked more like pink then red. It was on the news last night.ReplyDelete
I love your pic 1 and 2. With my eye the colors are magnificent.ReplyDelete
Tulips, you have tons of them. Their colours are very beautiful.ReplyDelete
@Red: some of that to come. They plant other beds with colours side by side as opposed to mixing three or four together.
@RedPat: it's been an odd spring, but it looks like the tulip displays will be quite colourful. I've been photographing more today.
@Beth: there's a lot of work that goes into it.
@Carolann: it's a good choice for the anniversary year.
@Bill: they certainly are.
These are pretty amazing tulip beds, William. I imagine that red and white tulip will be very popular in Canada.ReplyDelete
They are beautiful! So many colors. I like the daffodils too.ReplyDelete
Delightful shots, William!ReplyDelete
With so many tulips how in the world can anyone find the Canada 150...unless, of course, it's labeled, or there's a wonderful entire bed of them.ReplyDelete
Wow, the flowers beds are truly spectacular !ReplyDelete
A sea of tulips!ReplyDelete
The new tulip sounds exciting! The pix are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Lovely place for a stroll.ReplyDelete
Did you ever find the commemorative Tulip?
@Jack: I expect it will be.ReplyDelete
@Linda: thank you.
@Kay: a good many of the beds are labeled- though if there are three or four different kinds together, you might have to guess which is which!
@Nathalie: they are, yes.
@Norma: there's no shortage of them.
@Cheryl: thank you!
@MB: I'm planning on going through the park this evening- unless we're having a downpour. I'll be photographing again throughout, and I pretty much know from the video where they'll be.
I love the story of Holland.ReplyDelete
I do as well.Delete
