Our landscape has been white for so very long that a bright burst of yellow is a true signal of spring. I spent some time at the McNeely Conservatory where it is spring, under glass. Yellow and red tulips, ranunculus, crocus, and daffodils are wonderful (and needed) reminders of the season of spring. These yellow tulips were set off by the blue reflection of the sky in the water behind them. Soon enough we will have spring outside too, and not need to go inside to experience it.
I have never visited McNeely. I think I will have to stop there this trip while I am home. Beautiful picture!
You will certainly enjoy it; the only place you’ll find blooming flowers here except at a florist. Take in the smells when you visit!
Can’t wait! I have it on my schedule for Thursday. Do you know how they are keeping them fresh?
They change them out regularly if there are problems. You will love the Sunken Garden, as well as the other areas of the conservatory too! I’m so glad you’re able to get it on your schedule for this trip. Enjoy!
I was so happy to see your tulip pictures. Mine were just peeking out when I left Holland on Friday. They all might be gone by the time I make it home at the end of April. Thanks for the tips!
But of course! We don’t get the lush fields of tulips here like you have in Holland (unless you go to the Mount Vernon area of Washington state), but we get really excited with the colors that the conservatory has. Enjoy your visit to Como and to Minnesota; hope it’s a good trip!
Such a beautiful picture!!
Thanks, Sheri! We get really excited about colorful flowers here when we are longing for spring.
I hope you use this as one of your greeting cards. I just bought Heart to Heart W107 at the chocolate candy shop on St. Clair, and it was the perfect message & photo. Fran – St. Paul
Thanks for visiting my blog, Fran. And I’m so happy you found the perfect card at Regina’sCandies (and hopefully some perfect chocolates to go with it!). Yes, I think these yellow tulips will be on a card next spring! Thanks again.
