I returned to Commissioners Park twice in the last week. The first occasion was on Monday, Victoria Day, the last day of the festival. As you can imagine, it was quite busy. I started from the usual spot, at the north west portion of the park near the Dow's Lake Pavilion.
A gardening company on site happened to have some of these garden statues out and about, including one placed by a bed of tulips. I'll pick up here tomorrow.
Wow, so many tulips! It is extraordinary.ReplyDelete
Did they have a shipload of bulbs delivered from the Netherlands? So many tulips make a truly memorable sight.ReplyDelete
You can see that all of the crowds taking photos really appreciate being able to see the tulips in flower.ReplyDelete
The tulips seem to have reached the height of these perfection at this time.ReplyDelete
Such a sight!ReplyDelete
I almost got lost in so many tulips ...ReplyDelete
The "owl" statue is wonderful!

The grape hyacinth are a lovely edging to the tulips, the garden statues look lovely on the lawns, the fawn looks so life like!ReplyDelete
the tulips have really come on in the last few days. They are completely open.ReplyDelete
How wonderful...I hope this series goes on and on. But there's bound to be more beauty you'll share, so I'll deal with it.ReplyDelete
So beautiful. They don't usually last long, but these seem to have held on for quite a while!ReplyDelete
