Tulips peaking in what "must" be the tulip capital of Iowa

Tulip Time was, and always is, the first Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in May. 

My friend and I went to Pella a week after Tulip Time and as you will see, the tulips were at peak beauty! 

Here I am, posing with a "river of tulips." This was in Sunken Gardens Park, where there is a pond in the shape of a wooden shoe. I think you'd need to get a picture from above to be able to see the shape, and I didn't have the opportunity to climb up in the windmill to get the shot (lol).

Marilee and I had lunch at the Tulip Tea Room.

A few more tulips:

I am inspired! Inspired to plant more tulips this fall, for oh, how I love tulips!
