Tulips in May

As difficult as it was to take a decent photograph of my nieces and nephews when we went to see the tulip fields in Mt. Vernon last Sunday, this one of my nephew Jean-Paolo turned out kind of refreshing and funny! He blended in in the sea of red with his red coat that was almost the exact same shade as the tulips, which he could care less about, but judging from this pic, I think he enjoyed himself along with his brother and two older sisters.


Enjoy the pics of my family as I share this spetacular annual show with them!

Yours truly with my neon green shirt that just looks smashing with the deep violet of Tulipa 'Negrita'. hehe

Back at Landwave, my stands of Tulipa 'Ballerina' that just lights up the spring garden.

More tulip pics on my Flickr page, here.


  1. Lovely pics! I'm curious, the Dutch chop off all the flowers around this stage to promote a good bulb formation, don't they do this in WA?

  2. You know, I think they do. They could have deadheaded them right after the festival (since we came on the last day). The ones that were finished blooming looked to have been decapitated. I wish I can make it over to the Netherlands and see the bulb fields there!
