Time to Pack it Up…

…this will be my last tulip field post for now. It’s time to pack and head south.

I’m always on the lookout for the odd one in the bunch…

I was so happy that I was prompted to stash my yard boots in the car before I headed to the fields because…

…here’s what I got to walk through to get to all the different colored rows of tulips!

Yes, I felt quite smug! I’ll admit it…

If you didn’t have boots on the Roozengaarde Garden was a good choice to see many beautiful varieties of tulips and to be able to buy bunches of tulips, too.

Packed fresh and ready to send to the stands to sell.

I managed to take the garden shots avoiding hundreds of people that were milling about. The later in the morning the worse it gets.

Tuesday will be my day to get everything organized at this old house for my absence. I will be packing the suitcases for a very early departure on Wednesday morning. Dear will be coming later in the week.

  1. Very wise thinking tucking those garden boots in the trunk. That’s how they pack and ship them? I’m shocked! How do they ever survive. There must be another step there somewhere beyond our seeing. Happy preparations and have a lovely time!

    • Vee, I don’t know if they are shipped this way. They do sell them at their garden shop just across the street from the fields so I’m guessing these are ready to go there.

  2. I have enjoyed seeing your pictures of the beautiful tulip fields. What amazing beauty! I was wondering if they were grown just for the bulbs or for cut flowers. Your post today answered my questions 🙂 Thanks for sharing. ~~Elaine in KY

  3. Love the pictures, Ellen, especially the odd one out shots – wonder how that odd one feels. 😉
    Is the Tulip Festival pretty spot on time every time? If I were to plan a visit, is it wise to plan around the Festival time? I know with the Cherry Blossom Festival, there is no way one can plan their visit because the blooming time is so unpredictable.

    • It’s not spot on for sure. They have a range from April 1st through April 30th because of weather in any given year. This year the middle of April seemed to be their peak time. Some years April 8th is their peak time. I think that some fields would still be in bloom at any point of the month. This area also has fields of daffodils that come out earlier than the tulips and then they have iris fields, too.

  4. I LOVE the picture of the one random odd ball. I have to admit with every picture you shared I’ve been looking to see if I could spot an odd ball standing out in a field….just seems right to have one lone tulip standing out. I have so enjoyed all these tulip pictures. Praying safe travels and lots of fun, precious memories.

  5. Having those boots handy made all the difference in the world!!! You were able to get photos to which only the chosen few are privy!!! You must have been a Girl Scout…”always prepared.” 🙂

  6. Gorgeous flowers, I’m waiting for my tulips to bloom, the first one budded yesterday and got hit with a hard freeze last night. I hope it survived. Would love to go to a tulip festival, I would be in photography heaven.

  7. I can hear the slushing as you take each step. Glad you didn’t have to tip toe through the tulips as you snapped those nice shots. I love tulip fields….wonder if I’ll get to see a few yet once we get home…..some late bloomers should still be smiling.

  8. It was an aerosol can of either Barbasol or Colgate. Since the holiday season is approaching, you can rest assured that you
    might acquire massive reductions on selected designs. On the back
    of the card that comes with the razor, it states that you should, “Change the cartridge when empty holes start to appear in the gel reservoir”.
