London tulips – St Paul's, April 2009

The first spring I spent in London, I was awestruck by the appearance of the tulips.  Every flowerbed in the city that had appeared lifeless only a month prevously, exploded in a sea of vibrant colour, with shades varying from the most delicate lemon yellow to deep purple to this exuberant fountain of yellow and orange.  I could not walk past a bed without taking a photo.  Nine years on, nothing has changed :)

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister.

That’s a stunningly beautiful photo. Worthy of being enlarged, framed and hung.

Gorgeous! I love tulips too – I remember them being cheap to buy as great bunches of pretty pink or white, or scarlet and yellow, in the florists too. Thanks for reminding me!

You can’t help but feel happy when looking at this beautiful photo! The color of that tulip is gorgeous. So, when are you going to start selling your photos? That photo is screaming to be framed!

It’s great that you still retain that same sense of wonder and appreciation even after 9 years– don’t ever change! :)

Jeanne, just because something is universally appealing, doesn’t mean it is not beautiful. It just means we all have really good taste. What a gorgeous pic.
