Islands

A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme for August 1st is City People.

You can probably tell by now that this bed of pink tulips, with islands of yellow ones, particularly captivated me.


Here we look back again at where I'd been.


Every once in awhile in the brush behind the bed one sees tulips of another colour, such as the two brighter yellow ones here. Remnants of a previous year, perhaps transplanted by squirrel gardeners.
