Hard work and wonderful color

These are the thousands of tulips planted in the roadway median in front of my building at work.  Our grounds people really deserve a hand for the groupings like this all over the property.  Just fabulous.
















The red ones tend to bloom a week before the white ones, so it is difficult to get them all at once.  You can tell we're close to the end of the red ones in the second photo.  I'm happy they have ridden out the storms rather well.  It was a tad windy this morning, which I didn't compensate for quite as much as I should have in these photos.


This is a great way to start and end the day.  Very cheerful!

What a lovely display. Tulips are my favourite flower and I love to see them bobbing in the wind - they always look so cheerful.

Wonderful tulips -- lovely you got both colors. We don't have Spring flowers (the typical ones) here in Florida because it's too hot. (No Winter, no Spring flowers....my husband says it's a good trade!) I usually think so too, except that I really miss tulips, daffodills etc!

Stunning - I love the reds and whites planted together!

That would be a sight for sore eyes...either in the morn or as you leave. Wonder just how many thousands there are?
