Unusual Tulips at the Bowmanville Museum – Spring 2012

ImageLast spring I posted some tulip photos that I took at the Bowmanville Museum.  Many of them were poking their heads through the fallen magnolia blossoms.  They were quite a lovely sight.

Two weeks ago, I thought I’d have a look at this year’s specimens planted by the Bowmanville Horticultural Club last fall. I was not disappointed. Here is one of the photos that I took. This was one of the prettiest ones currently in bloom.

    What a beautiful shot! I love the colours and the composition! The tulips up here are just poking their leaves an inch or two above the ground still. It was -5C this morning!

    • Loreen,
      The conditions were perfect for this photo. It was a partly cloudy morning and also the subject had nice contrasting colours. I have more photos taken that same day but this time I tried what is referred to by WordPress as a “quick post”. Thought I would try it as it takes me too much time to do the regular ones. This method only allowed one picture.

    • Shirley,
      I appreciate your interest and your comments. I tried the “quick post” so it only allowed 1 photo or so it seemed. I will add some more later. It was a perfect day for those shots with just a bit of sunshine. The whites actually showed some detail.
      Take care.
