Tulip Time


Last month we spent a day in Nauvoo, Illinois, which is a significant place in Mormon history (I'm Mormon in case you didn't know) and is still a significant and special place because of the temple and church history sites that are there. The temple grounds are beautifully well-kept and I took some pictures of the colorful tulips there. I like how tulips have a big hollow cup that fills up with sunshine and illuminates the whole flower. They're so beautiful in their elegant simplicity.

Location: Nauvoo, Illinois

I like the combination of yellow and purple together; what a nice contrast!



These tulips have sharper-looking edges that look like they were designed and cut with nature's scissors.

Man Donna these are pretty. You got some gorgeous shots. I love the pink and white tulips. I have never seen any like those. They are so delicate looking. Thanks for linking up my friend.

Gorgeous tulips! I wish we could plant them in our yard but the squirrels eat them.
