I finally made my annual trek to Ironstone Vineyards to capture some photos of their barrels and barrels of blooming spring bulbs.
The lighting was not optimum as the direct sun can wash out the colors but I take what I can get. Tomorrow it is to be overcast and would be a better photography day but I have to work on the mountain, which is in the opposite direction.
Close ups are my favorite shot
Barrels and barrels of tulips..
All shapes, colors and sizes…
then there is the oh so fragrant Hyacinths
Crave the Wave…interesting name for this mix…
There are still plenty of daffodils even though many are about finished up for the season.
I seem to gravitate to the fluffy centered ones…
though the regular trumpets are just as pretty.
Walking along the flower lined paths is refreshing to the soul
funny how different the climate and growing season is just 12 miles down the road. My tulips are just a leaf poking out of the ground at this moment, and my daffodils have yet to bloom but soon they will pop open, if the weather continues the warm spell we are enjoying.
I hope you enjoyed this little bit of our tour, there is more to share and I shall.
Have a sunshiny day!
