Tulips (part 2)

Still more tulip pictures.

About Malou
I'm a mom to a five-year old little girl with interest in cooking, baking, traveling and photography. Castles and palaces are special favorites so when weather permits for a good walk on weekends, me, hubby and little girl are always out for a bit of adventure.

    So gorgeous. I love your tulip posts so, so much.

  3. Oh, look at the all white one w/fringe. But then I love the variegated colors too… oh why won’t mine bloom? I think the squirrels ate or stole all my bulbs I planted. They are so beautiful Malou.

  8. You can never have too many tulip photos. Beautiful.

  9. Dudette says:

    Beautiful pictures! I couldn’t stop making pictures myself at the tulip fields and Keukenhof.

  10. Jane says:

  14. WOW love all these photos :D Thanks for sharing! I wish I can go one day and take some amazing photos too ~

    I remember seeing a program once that featured the various forms of “tulip” people have developed over the years. It’s truly an art form and a real celebration of the Dutch people that have made this plant so central to what defines them as a culture. I live in Michigan where a lot of Dutch have immigrated and it’s similar on this side of the pond: they have a great pride in their culture, of their traditions, and of course, a great affection for their tulips.

    Thanks for sharing, Malou.

    • Malou says:

      Tulips are not endemic to Holland. In fact, they were originally grown in Turkey but since it found its way to Holland, the Dutch have made it a part of their identity. The Dutch are people who are proud of their culture and traditions. They may have indeed move across the globe but they remain true to who they are and the things that are truly Dutch. ;-)

  16. I don’t know why, but even though pinks and reds and mixed colors are gorgeous, I love the yellow tulips the best. Maybe because I can only plant white tulips – the deer eat the rest!

    • Malou says:

      Oh, so the deer also loves eating tulips. ;-)

      • As we say here – Big Time! They won’t touch primroses or daffodils or crocus. They LOVE all kinds of roses, doesn’t matter what variety. In general, they eat everything that doesn’t have fuzzy leaves or a large smell. So, most of my herbs are left alone.

  17. Amy says:

    Gorgeous! I love all the colors, but the yellow is cheerful and the purple is rich. Do you get to see blooms in late May and early June?

    • Malou says:

      Thanks a lot, Amy. It depends on the temperature mostly if there will be blooms in late May and early June. When spring is already too hot early on, then the tulips do not stay that long. Most times, up to the first week of May. Yet there was a time that I still saw tulip fields in full bloom in early June some years ago.

  18. Yolanda Presant says:

    Luvly! We have tulip farms here in the Lower Mainland of BC and there are many Dutch people who farm there!

  19. You are so talented. The Earth is so talented.

  20. Beautiful pics! Isn’t it lovely what Mother Nature can do! :)

  21. To quote Eliza Doolittle, loverly!

  22. Jack says:

    Great seeing even more tulips. I think everyone loves the tulip. Here along the shores of Lake Michigan, way too many deer who also love them so they are hard to protect. As you will see if you check out a few of the archive postings, (www.gardensatwaterseast.blogspot.com) there are lots of flowers here but only a couple of tulips – I miss them! Jack

    • Malou says:

      Hmmm…so the bulbs are such a big attraction to the deers. If you don’t have the tulips there in abundance, you can just as well visit Holland in springtime, Jack. ;-)

  23. viveka says:

    Once again … you have brighten up my screen and my soul. The top ones are still my favorites. Love that apricot shade. Thank you so much.

  24. Gorgeous. I wish I had some of them in my garden

  25. How beautiful! I wish I could be in a field of flowers right now…

    • Malou says:

      Thanks a lot. You can still fly to Holland…the best time is yet to come which is around the end of the month to see these fields. ;-)

  26. whitt88 says:

    Just what I needed, a flower garden on my screen, and tulips at that. You’re springing us spring colours, thanks again.

  27. Absolutely exquisite.

  28. putneyfarm says:

    Another great set of pics- thanks! BTW- what lens are you using?

  29. Sacha says:

    All of these photos are stunning. I’m having a hard time fathoming how beautiful those fields are!

  30. scroungelady says:

    Beautiful – what does it look like when the tulips have completed blooming?

  31. I have so enjoyed your tulip captures….the colors, the angles, the macros, the massive fields, all so beautiful!

  32. takes my breath away!

  33. Angeline M says:

    Incredible. Each and every one. Great photos.

  34. WOW. Amazing photos… makes me want to visit! :)

  35. gkm2011 says:

    Absolutely gorgeous! One of Shanghai’s shortcomings is that we don’t have tulips here. I especially like the ones that look as though the edges are feathered.

  36. Paws To Talk says:

    Lovely flowers :)

  37. Fabulous! I love those ruffled ones!!!

  38. The Jagged Man says:

    I am envious! Very lovely!

  39. How wonderful to sign in and find another entry overflowing with the beautiful tulips! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous photos from your beauty adventures :)

  40. Elydia says:

    Oh my they are overwhelmingly gorgeous. My husband’s side is Dutch so I’d love to visit. This makes it even more tempting!

  41. It´s very hard to buy affordable and tasteful flowers here, so when I visit your blog I feel like someone has scooped up armfuls of spring flowers and filled my house with them…thank you!

  42. recoverythrumylens says:

    There’s no end to their beauty…thank you!

  43. Megan says:

    Your photos are beautiful. Makes me excited for our local tulip festival coming up in a few weeks :)

  44. polly says:

    another set of beautiful shot

  45. markawhite says:

    WOW–Your photos and insights are so stunning that I am at a loss for words. You and your family seem amazing. I, like you, appreciate local beauty which is normally overlooked and avoided, out of fear of confirming/conforming to stereotype (I studied the hidden psychology of stereotype threat/boost in school). I will use your page as beautiful vacation from gray tedium and drudgery. It may even make the world’s best homepage . . . Thank you for “making a noise [and a colorful splash] in the world” . . .

  46. Love the white “fringy” ones! Gorgeous.

  47. Jane says:

    Gorgeous! :)

  48. ladyfi says:

    More tulip magic!

  49. Each photo more beautiful than the one before!

  50. KarenCooking says:

    I love the ruffled varieties. Very pretty!

  51. These are stunning tulip photos! I love how you captured the colors and the beautiful ruffled edges of the flowers!

    Am having a little bit of trouble with my RSS feed, so your amazing posts aren’t showing up on my Blogs I Follow page! I think I can fix it by unfollowing, and then refollowing. I hope it works because I would hate to miss any more posts!

  52. Susan says:

    The photograph of the afternoon sun over the tulip fields is utterly exquisite. Beautiful post!

  53. Shez says:

    More gorgeous photos. So many new colors. I must plant tulips this fall!! (or at least buy the bulbs and let hubs do the actual labor…) ;)
