STOPS ALONG THE WAY

TARDY TULIPS (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

23 Comments

Tulips - Part 1I took these photographs at this year’s Tulip Festival in Ottawa. Given our cold rainy spring the tulips are slow to bloom. The majority of them look like those pictured below.  They’re in a holding pattern (like the rest of us) waiting for sunnier days. The upside is that when they do open up we’ll be able to enjoy them later into the month.

  1. These are lovely photos, Belinda. I especially love the peonies. We’re having similar weather here, in Minnesota. Our tulips opened for a few days, and now that it’s cold and rainy, they’ve closed up until the sun returns. Our peony’s are a bit behind, too. Cheers to warmer weather!

  8. Beautiful captures, Belinda! The first image really shows off the intensity of that super-tulip. Your second image with what I think of as a more natural tulip is lovely with the daffodils mixed in.

  9. I don’t think Tulips do well down here. I rarely see them. Ellen had plenty planted up north. Nice photos, always liked the shapes and colors of Tulips.

  10. I hope your warmer weather will come soon. Our winter is tardy about arriving, but we do not mind that!
