Bloomin' Tuesday

Last week my husband and I traveled to Utah for my son's graduation from BYU. We had a fabulous weekend with family. There were many highlights, but one for me was traveling to Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah, to take in the "Tulip Festival." It was phenomenal. Acres and acres of gorgeous blooming tulips in beautifully manicures gardens. I was so happy we were able to fit this casual walking tour into our weekend. With over 100 varieties represented and a quarter of a million tulips spread over 55 acres, it is a sight to behold! This week and next I will feature some of those gorgeous blossoms...

Tucked in between the tulips are a gabillion pansies...

That is just amazing--thank you for sharing the pictures! It also makes me want to try crown fritilaria--I'd forgotten about them until I saw one in your pictures.

How beautiful Suzanne..Thanks for sharing this..Athena-Is Crown Fritilaria the tall plant with the red blooms hanging?..If so I want one as it reminds me of the gorgeous tall Canna Lilly that we grow every year..
