Lenten Rose

The gardens here besides being filled with tulips and daffodils (many that may have been blown away by age and a recent rain storm) also have a great deal of these flowers in different colors.  This week I will be featuring the other blooms that are in season now at the Inniswood Metro Gardens.

Come hither

Said the beckoning tulip to the honeybee

Why don’t you fly over and come see me

I’ve got something for you that’s free

And with it we will make sweet sweet honey…

Ruffles

The leaves here definitely look like tulip leaves but if you recall my post from yesterday – one of these things is not like the other!  We could be dealing with more than six petals here.  Anyone know the name of this frilly flower?

There’s a bee in my mouth…

There were honey and other bees buzzing busily in the gardens and I for one was quite happy to see them.

Let’s get daffy

As in daffodils.  If you want to be the other definition for daffy by all means go for it!  Another sign of spring are the arrivals of the daffodils.  Usually they bloom before tulips but in Inniswood they were sharing all of us humans with the tulips…and other flowers.

I’ve never seen a curly daffodil like these before; wonderfully unique.

Tiptoe through the tulips

Today Mother Nature was in a good mood as the weather, while breezy, was sunny and in the low 70’s.  Taking advantage of the day we went to Inniswood Metro Gardens  in Westerville, Ohio.  This beautiful park is a magnet for nature lovers and photographers.  While sitting down in the grass to get tulip shots I paused to let one photographer with his assistant pass by carrying their reflector and softbox.

My overalls that I wear when I know I will be getting very close to nature have muddy knees and back pockets from getting in there for the shots (it has been rainy here as of late) but it was so worth it.  More spring images will be featured this week so please come back and enjoy.
