In previous years, I've driven to Ottawa for the Canadian Tulip Festival where you can see over 3 millions tulips in bloom.
This year, I've been content to simply enjoy the tulips in my front garden.
Even when the Sun does not shine and the World is cool and damp, the tulips still sparkle and shimmer.
And as they age, there is still a beauty to be seen.
With all the riotous colours, this shot just screamed to be done as Photo Art.
Hope you enjoyed the photos.
