Photo Friday: World’s Favorite Tulip

As many readers know, I am an inveterate, unabashed, unapologetic lover of tulips! The most recent burst of rain and wind pretty much took the last petals of our tulips, but they were glorious again this year. A full report is coming. For now, there are these, Darwin Hybrids that really are called World’s Favorite.  Bright, large, dramatically colored — they did not disappoint. Neither did the great blue sky I found them under one recent day.

I hope you’re enjoying Spring in its full flower!

Have you seen and photographed something unusual, whimsical, beautiful, or otherwise interesting in your travels? Has anything surprised you or caused you to pause? Or have you simply experienced a small, lovely moment that you wanted to capture? If so, I hope you’ll share with us by leaving a comment with a link to your photo. I look forward to seeing it!

  1. Love tulips – went to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Washington state, 2005 to celebrate our 1 yr anniversary with tulips…! Here’s a pretty pic of hollyhocks in Amsterdam, July 2010 – they grow rampant all over the city and are gorgeous – somehow this is the only picture I can find – another old-time favorite flower in the land of tulips: http://t.co/uhPB0Sm

    • Hi Bill! I recognize you from Twitter. It’s really great to see you here. I would love to get to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival one year. It sounds fabulous. And I love your photo of hollyhocks in Amsterdam! I’m a huge hollyhock fan – yes, a wonderful old fashioned flower – in fact there is a hollyhock photo on my “About” page. You may know that I was recently in Amsterdam, too, so it’s a delight to see a familiar view at a different time of year. Hope to see you again real soon. Cheers! (P.S. Your store sounds wonderful, too. I look forward to learning more about it.)

  2. Oh yes, I remember looking at your hollyhock – all time fave – probably planted a subliminal suggestion to look through my Amsterdam pics – still the best vacation ever :)
