tulip festival 2011

We drove up to Mount Vernon for the tulip festival today. As you can see, it's a bit sunnier than last year but the rain was lurking just up the road. Afterwards we had a nice picnic lunch. They looked to be blooming about a week later than last year because there were still several rows that hadn't bloomed and no rows had been cut. I ordered several new varieties to add to my garden.

It may have been rainy, but at least no one has the flu this year!

What colors did you buy?

Some red, white, and yellow. I already have a lot of pink, orange, and purple. I opted to pay for shipping this year since it was a pain to drive back up in Oct when they're ready to be picked up.
