Tulips

We’ve been slow with the blogging lately. It’s all about photo management. My phone finally freaked and told me I had to delete mass quantities of pictures if I wanted to take more, so I uploaded a bunch of stuff to flickr. Back on Mother’s Day we drove to nearby Janesville to visit  Rotary Botanical Gardens.

Orange tulips everywhere

Definitely the best tulip display we saw all spring. They were all shades of orange. There are tons of different types of gardens represented, “Some have an international focus, such as the Japanese, Scottish, French Formal, Italian and English Cottage Gardens. Also included are less formally-structured gardens including one of very few Fern and Moss gardens recognized by the Hardy Fern Foundation in the United States, as well as Shade, Prairie and Woodland Gardens.” It’s fun!

Japanese Garden

I’m definitely going to take a trip back in late June for some summer flower action. It’s a fantastic garden.
