Tulips in the Park

Although the Tulip season has mostly passed in this area,
Jake and I found these beauties still very much alive in a park in Winnipeg.
My blogging friend,Krista, at Picture Imperfect has shown me how to frame my pictures.
This is a lot of fun and quite easy to do.
It was refreshing to see these beds of Tulips in all the brightest colors.
I thought the few reds among the yellow was very pretty.
The contrast of colors is eye catching.
These were all taken in the English Gardens in Winnipeg.
This bi-colored Tulip was quite unique.
The whole patch of them would have been beautiful when the flowers were in their prime.
Red and Yellow.
A perfect pair.
All pictures taken by Ruth with the Canon Rebel xti
and Canon 100-400mm lens.

You don't have to worry about eyestrain
from looking on the brighter side of life.

You are way behind me in southern Iowa, we lost tulips almost 2 weeks ago.Wish they would last longer, have a bunch posted for Brendas Challenge in my blog.

Great job of framing of your beautiful pictures. They remind me of mirrors rather then pictures.

Oh, very pretty Ruth. Leonard loves the red and yellow. I'm stuck on the peachy pink ones. Beautiful post. Did you frame that with photoshop? Diane

Ruth, these are so beautiful! I love tulips. The frames you chose are just perfect. I like the second frame the best but the oval ones you used were suited to a tee. :o)

The tulips (and the frames) are beautiful. I also like the red tulips among the yellows.
