Now it was time for some serious tulip viewing. But it was well past 1:00, so we took time for some lunch first.
When we're out exploring, we don't do fancy. :-)
OK, get ready for a photo dump!
There will be plenty of blooms yet for next weekend.
Princess Irene tulips!
These fringed tulips were very intriguing.
Not just doubles, but triples.
Bulb fields are rotated each year, so it's only about every three years that we have growing fields right behind the display garden. It's the best!
Expecting muddy field conditions after days of rain, we were prepared, with our Muck Boots on.
Here we go, into the fields.
Back in the display garden.
A Muscari (Grape hyacinth) Seahawk!
We didn't spend much time in the gift shop. We were color saturated and beauty satiated. There is another great visitor place, Tulip town, but we didn't need it. We were ready to move on, but not to quit. We had more exploring to do!
