These two pics of the colourful flowers (yellow with red) were found in the raised beds containing the fan palms as you approach the beach. I love the underplanting of forget-me-nots!
The red tulips underplanted with forget-me-nots are my favourite of the two colours shown. The planting above was on Denman at Davie Streets. I really love the photo below. I got down on my knees for that shot but since my right knee has been acting up for some weeks prior (crazy weather I guess?), it was a bit of a chore to get back up though certainly worth it! You draw your own conclusions.
On May 10th, Mother's Day, the yellow tulips were still going strong but were on the downward side of their life as flowers. The weather was warm, just the sun was lacking but as you can see, lots of people were out walking, riding their bikes, skateboarding or whatever.
As you can see, by Mother's Day, the red tulips were nearly at the end of their life cycle as flowers this spring. These photos were taken a week after the first set. Quite a difference! The tulips were fading but the forget-me-nots were going strong, rather fitting that it was Mother's Day, don't you think? Hope you've enjoyed this colourful look into one of my favourite spring flowers, the beloved tulip! - V.
