Orange Tulips

Usually I gravitate toward cool colours, and I’m not an enthusiastic fan of bright orange or yellow. But I love peachy corals and buttery golds, when it’s done like this in Algonquin College’s tulip flowerbeds. I love the little pops of blue grape hyacinth and smaller cherry-red tulips planted at their feet. A short, blossoming shrub draped untamed branches between the flowers, giving it a woodsy feel.

The tulips are in full bloom right now and I see them everywhere I go. Every Spring I try to take a few pictures of them to mark the occasion. The Tulip Festival has also started, so please enjoy the season!

  1. I am also a fan of the more subtle colors. You've done a lovely job with these photos - I can practically feel the flowers waking up to greet the season!
