Tulips

12/11/11

Central Park. Tulips are a bulbous perennial flower. Well, I’ve had no luck with them. And I can say the same for poinsettia. They are red at Christmas and thereafter never again for me. This stunning bed on the eastside of the park has not been there in subsequent years. But it was a stunning display for that one year. It’s one of those small gems that one stumbles across when you least expect it. There was a great display in Portland, Maine that is perennial. At least I photographed it twice. But that’s another story. Oh, don’t forget to notice the bubbles on the right.

  1. This reminded me – don’t forget the Rose parade. Thanks for pointing out the bubbles.

    • The bubbles came in because some kids were playing off camera. Later I liked them. The kids might have been fun to include but they were too far away to be effectively in the shot.

  2. How lucky that you saw these beautiful tulips. Was this in Spring? I wonder why they are no longer being grown…

    • Spring in Central Park a few years ago. No tulips at this time of the year. My blog wanders all over my photo inventory. It is a collection of the selected shots from my past. Imaged Event is for now and the happenings that can’t be told in a single photo. I just thought I would stay on the spring theme as I have lots of flower pictures.
