I have always walked past white flowers, thinking they were “boring”. Since there was lots of time and so many flower beds to choose from, I figured I would go ahead and take a few shots of the white tulips. As I scanned through my shots on the computer, this one stood out as a very elegant piece. Elegance isn’t really part of my life, but I am admiring this tulip.
We got to the park at sunrise, but it was a bit overcast. As the morning progressed, so did the sunshine. It was a bit too bright for many shots, but the sun added a nice glow to these red tulips.
I thought red and white was for candy canes…looks good on tulips, too!
This purple tulip with white trim reminds me of a royal cape you might see on a king in some old movie classic…or in a costume shop!
This image sums up my morning. I saw all these floral varieties, plus a few more.
Frilly, is that a word? I’ll have to try it in Scrabble 🙂 Ok, I checked…it’s in the dictionary, but the origin of the word is unknown. It certainly applies to these tulips, though. The colors were so brilliant, I did no editing of this photo other than a crop.
I think the hyacinths get overlooked in the world of spring flowers. I suppose “Tulip” Festival rolls off the tongue easier than “Hyacinth”. But, their beauty and vibrant color add a nice variety to the garden beds in Washington Park.
