On a beautiful Spring morning, me and my friend Summer made a mini-roadtrip out to North San Juan to see the famous tulip display at the Crystal Hermitage gardens at Ananda. Oh my gosh, I am SO GLAD I went!
When I heard "11,000 tulips" I really didn't know what to imagine. I'd only ever seen tulips in a small row in a garden, or planted in uniform colors in big flower growing fields in The Netherlands. I wasn't prepared for the artistry of this garden at all. The Crystal Hermitage is on a slope far above the river canyon, and it hangs there like a dream. I felt like I was in an almost unearthly place:
And the tulips. The TULIPS! Really, I don't need to use words:
Beautiful Summer, a doll amongst the flowers:
I love Summer so much!
I hope you are having fun with flowers this Spring!
*Huge thanks to my friend Leonna who encouraged me to see the tulips.*
