Spring Ahead: Almost Tulip Time: Take 2

For Mellow Yellow Monday ...


I couldn't resist posting a few more photos from last year's Ottawa Tulip Festival. Thinking of how many gorgeous flowers were there just makes me feel cheery -- even with all our snow still outside!

It's like seeing thousands of individual suns penetrating our hearts.

What gorgeous color these are. It seems so good to see flowers even if they are from a show, now that the weather is still hanging on to winter.

The Jonquils and Daffodils are blooming here. The fruit trees have budded. I am afraid the frost will get them.

I took a photo like this at the Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands a couple of years ago. Gracious! You mean I didn't have to travel so far to see such gorgeous tulips?

Simply lovely...nothing nicer than a field of tulips and yours are rather unique looking! I'm going to a tulip festival up in Washington in early April. Hopefully, I'll get some good shot of lots of tulips. Enjoy the day and hope it's full of lots of yellow and not too cold!

I can't wait for these colors to start popping up in my backyard...such a beautiful feast for the eyes..great photos!

Tulips are such grand flowers. I can hardly wait for the spring to really set in and see our tulips at the cottage. At least two months till that yet. Sigh!

Still, these cheered me up.
