It's tulip time here.  This morning PH and I went to Holland, Michigan to see what we could see a week before the tulip festival begins.  The city plants millions of tulips and the festival is the highlight of the year for springtime in Holland and it just gets bigger and bigger.  But if you don't want to jostle crowds, drive in circles looking for parking or have someone always in your photo, you go early.  The tulips are blooming now.  

I gave PH the iPad to use and I carried two cameras.  We opted to just wander around the city park rather than go to Windmill Island.  A tulip is a tulip, right?  And we were just looking for a few photos.  The weather was overcast and by the time we left the city it was raining so there are is no shadow play in the photos.  New to this, PH had fun using the iPad! 
  We found ourselves on opposite sides of the same bed of flowers and took pictures of each other taking pictures of each other.


  1. Hahaha, you crazy kids!! Can you ever imagine when tulip bulbs were on the stock exchange? We have a similar festival here in Melbourne, held in our hills, where the weather gets cold enough to stimulate the bulbs into flower. Love the photo.
