The tulips in this top picture look almost like peonies and this is one of the last tulip beds to finish blooming this spring.

This spring I took short walks most days in the Arboretum and followed the progress of the tulips as I progressed in healing after surgery. It has taken me a while to post these (or much of anything).


Promise of blooms to come!

Promised blooms.

I’m including selections from different flower beds. The Frelinghuysen Arboretum was participating in a special year for tulips and they had extra beds and a lovely variety. I’m including photos from different days and different times of day.

The walkway with the crazy tulips in the very first picture in this post and a close up of yet another purple and orange flowerbed. I love combinations of secondary colors and these beds of tulips really made my day on so many days! For more flower photos check out Cee’s Flower of the Day.

I hope you have some beauty in your day.
