Tulips in bloom at Descanso Gardens...




I went to Descanso Gardens in La Canada a couple of weeks ago and the tulips were enthralling to me.  I spent all of the time I had there that day looking at and photographing the tulips.  Above are a few of the photographs that I took.  I'm not certain how long tulips are in season, but if you are near by, I recommend visiting!

Also, if you're local, Hans Hemling's Portrait of a Man is on loan at the Norton Simon until April 30th and Wonderland, a show of female surrealist artists featuring Frida Kahlo at LACMA will be closing May 6th.  I intend to write and share photographs from my visits to these exhibits, but this will be after the shows close, so I'm putting that information here in case anyone is interested in attending.

Once again, I am a little late for Inspire Me Monday but these flowers were definitely inspiring to me!  I am also linking this with Inspired Tuesday.

I have also created a new blog and twitter account that I intend to dedicate to my declutter efforts ;).

Thanks so much for sharing such beautiful pictures. Here in Florida I really don't see any Spring flowers ... too hot I expect and I do so miss those Spring flowers. My favorites are daffodils.

Happiness to all.

Beautiful photos, a great sight to see the colors that have those flowers, exquisite and delicate compositions. Greetings.

Thank you ArtSings1946, flowers are a favorite subject of my art, so I tend to photograph them at almost any opportunity. When I get a chance (perhaps for next weeks Wordless Wednesday) I'll look to see if I can find a daffodil photograph to share next week :).

Thank you also Leovi, nature is wonderful in her spring glory.

Thank you Magic Love Crow! Your comment is so sweet and I'm all smiles reading it. I'm glad you like the photos. Next Monday I'm writing about our wonderful friend Jo-Ann's art, but the week after that I'll start on the exhibits :).

What beautiful tulips, Lisa! They don't grow well around here so I love to see them in pictures.
