Tulips at Esther Short Park downtown

I was walking past Esther Short Park downtown today when I spotted these red and varigated tulips. Since my friend isn't the walker that I am, she just wanted to get back home as she was tired after just a two mile walk. So, later this afternon, I went back and found these! Many of the tulip plants are up and budding but not blooming yet. This are just a few shots of some of the ones that were blooming already. I think the blue skies we had the last 4 days and weather in the 70's helped, don't you?

Katney found out the name of this flower from below in a post:it is a Pink Flowering Current.

I LOVE the tulips! They are gorgeous.

Hooray for Katney! I don't think I've ever seen flowering currents before...so I'm going to Google it. ;-) Thanks for telling us!

You are lucky to have such beautiful tulips in full bloom now. I especially liked the second one. We have mostly to buy ours at the moment.

The flowers are much needed after the rain of winter and fall. They prove the world will be bright again!
Nice catch.

These are LOVELY tulips! I'd like to grow them myself, but it's just too warm in Southern California.
Hugs and blessings,

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
