Tulip Heaven…..The Bowmanville Museum in May!

On Silver Street, in the town of Bowmanville, there is a treasure of a place to visit. The building itself is beautiful and the grounds continue to improve with the work of many volunteers and staff.

Last fall, the Bowmanville Horticulture Society donated many spring bulbs and then some of the club members brought their garden tools and their energy to plants hundreds (thousands!) of tulips and daffodils.

Three weeks ago, I visited the museum in the late afternoon, and was amazed by the beautiful results. Besides the colourful , the magnolia tree had shed nearly all of its  blossoms on the roof of the “conservatory” and created a carpet of pink petals about 5 inches deep below where many tulips were nestled. Quite a sight!

 Next May, if you live in the area or are planning an outing to Bowmanville, make sure that you stop by the grounds and explore the property. And of course remember to bring your camera. Remember, as many photographers say when asked what is the best camera, “it’s the camera you have with you!”.
