Splashes Of Colours

I'm starting today where we left off, with these tulip beds. Dow's Lake itself is visible in the background of the first two shots.


We carried on along the path, which took us past tulip beds with a mix of colours, and an assortment of accompanying flowers.


We came upon the circular bed of tulips, which this year consisted of red tulips mixed with the distinctive Canada 150 white and red tulip.

  17. I live in the South and our tulips never seem to last this long. Maybe the North is better for them?
