Miranda Meets Diana

These shots are from the tulip beds on the northwest end of Commissioners Park.


Across from the park, these orange tulips can be found near a building housing offices for a naval reserve unit; the building can be seen in the background, and is relatively new.


I liked the interplay of the statue and the tulips behind it on this property, with late afternoon sunlight shining from the west.

  11. It took me a bit to get your title Miranda meets diana. It's a good title. The tulips seem to be at their peak at this time.

  15. Dang! I'm just trying to imagine one guy out there with his little tulip planter planting each one of those bulbs. :-)

  16. @Lowell: and it's a name I'm fond of!

    @Norma: so do I.

    @Red: it seemed appropriate. The Diana tulips were looking good a few days after I took these shots.

    @Cloudia: very delightful!

    @Sharon: they really stood out to me.

    @Noke: thanks!

    @Revrunner: fortunately they do these in crews. One person would take a whole lot too much time.

  20. @RedPat: thank you.

    @Marleen: they certainly are.

    @Janis: I liked it. I don't get out that way too often, so this had been the first time I noticed it. The property belongs to some sort of spa, if I recall.

    @Mari: thank you!
