Project 52 - Fiesta and Siesta

project 52 p52 weekly photo challenge my3boybarians.com
Minter Gardens in the Fraser Valley is a 23 acre sculpted garden that attracts tourists and like from everywhere to visit and stroll through its spectacular floral gardens, enjoy a yummy meal at one of its two restaurants, or is also a destination for outdoor weddings and events. The seasonal gardens opened a month ago and we got our yearly passes right away!
We went again three weeks after our first visit and the Gardens were a riot of colour with Tulips everywhere!
It is invigorating and calming to stroll through a garden. Beautiful to enjoy especially if it is not you having to weed it!

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers of Spring. Thier multitude of colours and shapes are fiestas for the eyes. How can you not feel cheery with a bouquet of Tulips or gardens of Tulips to enjoy!!

Absolutely really beautiful pictures! I really like the peacock in tulips! I visited the zoo today and there were plenty of peacocks running around with their tail feathers displayed! It was so great!

I'm visiting from SkyWatch Friday.

These are such wonderful shots...reminds me of our Butchart Gardens...I love how you took the shots of the tulips...your camera angle was lower and produced a more interesting photo.
