More Of The Paparazzi

I left off with this bed of tulips yesterday. Several of the beds have short terraces built into them designed for photo ops, which is how this woman can be seen in their midst, ideal for the photographer at the right.


Then it was time to move onto the last of the tulip beds in this park, at its western end. This particular one is named in honour of the late Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. I will be returning to Dow's Lake to close out the series with a visit I made some days after this one, but we're going to other spots first.

  1. That "paparazzi" insert in the flower bed is a great idea whose time has come. There's something special about being completely surrounded by these gorgeous flowers.

  10. This is a very lush area!
    My friends are on a tour so I am not sure what day they will be there - probably Thur & Fri so with this heat there will be few tulips! Thanks anyway!

  11. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to tulips. I like the cup shape rather than the fancy shapes many tulips have today. I also like the solid color.
