Tulips in the early morning

The tulips in Elizabeth Park's annual garden are always gorgeous in the first light of the day.

Yesterday several people commented that the library's reading room was empty.  That is deceptive.  I was there soon after it opened, and I went to the third reading room, which had not yet filled up.  The library is actually a very busy one.

It's always worth getting up for the early light....except on days like today in England where it dawned dank, dark and dreer. Thanks goodness for your tulips to brighten the day!

These shots brought a big smile to my face! Tulips are such cheery flowers.

Gosh, I miss tulips. For years, I lived near Holland, MI where there's a well known annual Tulip Festival. You get a gold star, Jack, for not only getting up early but taking brilliant pics shortly after sunrise.

I love the way the morning light is shining through them all. Just beautiful! I don't even know when our tulips appear...maybe May?!
Thanks for the color:)

Pretty, pretty, pretty. That and the setting sun are the best moments for light... When you can see the sun that is. Not so here at the moment! :-)

How beautiful!

Wonderful, rich, golden captures Jack - that last shot with the yellow tulips in the foreground and the "rusty" tonings of nearby trees is my favourite. Thanks for sharing.
