Not my bulbs or my yard. I WISH! My trip to Thanksgiving Point Gardens in Lehi, Utah where they plant 250,000 tulips each year. Why? Because it's a Tulip Festival!!!

Wow! Absolutely stunning!

1. I want to go to there.
2. Your pictures are gorgeous! Thank you for sharing them!

RE: Tulip Festival (lots of pics)

fantastic! My favorite might be the viola patch, although all of them feel like a burst of spring. 250,000 is a lot of bulbs! It makes me smile to think how sometimes I splurge on a clump of 20!

Flower porn at its finest. Thanks!
