TULIP FESTIVAL IN BOWRAL
Bowral has celebrated the Tulip Festival for the past 55 years. The design and planting plan varies from year to year and the gardeners usually plant in excess of 60 000 tulips, much to the delight of the thousands of visitors each year. Getting the tulips to flower at exactly the right time each year is a challenge. Spring arrived very early last year which meant that many of the tulips were almost over by the time the Festival opened. Despite the cold spring this year, only a few tulips failed to open on cue. The planting design and colour choices this year are a bit too dramatic for my taste. Hundreds of people would disagree it seems! See some of my photos below.
Last year’s tulips in my own new garden. The Parrot tulips in the pot were spectacular again this year.
Wishing you all a great week ahead.
