Tulip Festival (If You're Into That Kind of Thing)

Don't bother going out to the Gardens at Thanksgiving Point. Not unless you like stuff like masses of flowers
blooming in a riot of color,

wide open spaces in which to frolic,

grassy slopes perfect for rolling down,

pools and fountains,

idyllic backgrounds for photographing your favorite subjects,

or toddlers who run with their tongues hanging out. (That might have been a one-night-only attraction.)


There's also dappled sunlight, meandering streams, and waterfalls. If you like that sort of thing.

So sweet! And toddlers running with tongues hanging out is my *favorite* attraction

Oh! This makes me homesick for Utah! I love the tulip festival. The Secret Garden there is my favorite. Great pictures, just beautiful.

With Silver Bells, And Cockle Shells,
And Cowslips all in a row.

Your garden appears to be growing well.

I like that sort of thing. And I like pictures of grandchildren frolicking.

You know, I don't think I've made ever gone to T'giving Point during tulip season? Sounds (looks!) lovely, though.

I recently learned of the flower festival in Brussels each year where they make a tapestry out of a million begonias:
