This morning I drove to a small town in Iowa that celebrates a tulip festival every May. Because the weather has been so warm this spring, the tulpis are blooming now.
The large displays of tulips are quite beautiful. However, what I really like is seeing individuals flowers close up.
This little tulip was showing off his color in a sea of white flowers.
Orange is one of my favorite colours.
These two tulips seemed to be posoing for my camera. Even with the light rain they seemed happy.
These red and white tulips looked nice.
So did these.
I liked these.
I noticed these red tulips had an interesting ruffled edge to them.
These pink tulips and small purple flowers made a nice image.
Here is a statute of a woman and two children dressed in traditional Dutch attire.
The boy is handing his mother some tulips. Notice the wooden shoes they are wearing.
I liked the detail of the tulips in the basket.
It was time to go home. I noticed many of the windows in this town have lace curtains. The curtains go well with the vintage houses and buildings.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Easter to you.
