I would say only about a quarter to a third of the tulips are in flower, and there are probably more visitors than flowers this afternoon! Nonetheless, the current amount of tulips is already quite impressive, and I can't wait to come again when flowering is at its peak.
Now onto the flowers! It's nice to see so many people interested in flowering plants, although I wish more people pay attention to the equally beautiful native plants that are flowering in nearby forests, as well as the animals associated with them (e.g., the pollinators), but I am probably highly biased. Now, I did not remember any of the varieties that I photographed, so forgive me and just enjoy the blast of beautiful colours.
My favourite variety.
After photographing the tulips, it got kind of repetitive, so I decided to take photos of people and other photographers.
On the other side of Dow's Lake (or even on the lake itself), it's probably very quiet and peaceful compare to where I was standing with screaming children and annoying adults from time to time.
With smartphones, everyone is a photographer nowadays.
Curious to what images other photographers have captured.
Not one but two photographers.
For some reason, one of my favourite shots of the day. They seem like a nice couple.
Quite a lovely day today.
