Dazzling Tulip Colour In The City

These tulips were in Dundonald Park.


While these were in a garden for a nearby home.


And these were at the National War Memorial. I will be back into my series on the Tulip Festival after the June theme day.

  6. The traditional red and yellow tulips are perhaps the most beautiful (though really, I like them all!).

  12. Those first red tulips are outstanding....such depth in color. Thanks for your funny comment on Ocala: Duckination, indeed. Might work better than what we've got now - a big fat stupid goose!

  16. tulips sure do brighten a place up don't they?!

  17. @MB: thank you!

    @Red: this is a pretty garden. I pass that property on a regular basis, and it is well kept up.

    @Lowell: it seemed appropriate!

    @Sharon: that might be a Canada 150- I remember somewhere hearing that while most of that type of tulip were showing white and red, some came up with orange or purple in place of red. The pattern is like the Canada 150, anyway.

    @Nancy: thanks!

    @RedPat: I keep wondering if any of my readers will be sick of them before I'm done.

    @Linda: indeed!

    @Tanya: they do!

  20. They're all so beautiful...but I still favor the yellow ones!

  21. How lucky you are to be surrounded by so much beauty and so many tulips! I'd be happy to see even one tulip around here but it looks like they prefer your area. :)

  22. I like the purple and white too. Probably because those were my high school's colors!

  23. @Bill: me too.

    @Denise: thanks!

    @Norma: more yellow to come!

    @Eve: I think they require a certain climate.

    @Lois: it's an unusual combination. I do think it's a Canada 150 that shifted colours at some point over the winter.

    @Mari: thank you!

  25. Dazzling certainly describes them well ...
    Great series of photographs.

    All the best Jan
