Along The Tulip Pathway

Carrying on where I left off yesterday, this view showed where I was heading. Some of the tulips were showing brightly, others were yet to come.


This views are of the largest stand-alone bed in the park, seen at the left of the path in the above shot.


Here we have tulips in a bed that's on a raised circle. In previous years display panels about the history of the festival and the liberation of the Netherlands have stood around part of this circle, but with Covid-19 this year, those panels were missing. One type of tulip in this bed was well underway, while the other was a few days behind.

  13. I just looked at the photos in this post and previous ones and WOW that is quite an impressive display and arrangement of colors. These days when the news is less uplifting, it's nice to see such beauty around.

  14. I have heard that the tulip's blooming season is quite short. Do you know how long these last?
