140 - Feeling a tad Dutch

On Saturday after our massive breakfast we decided to walk it off while taking in the sights around the Araluen Botanic Park. I've never been there before but I've heard all good things. And I wasn't disappointed! You all know how I love taking photos of flowers... So please be warned, this page is going to be a photo heavy festival of petals and colour for the next few days...
The red and red/yellow tulips that we found as we first entered the park were the biggest blooms I think I've ever seen - very impressive. I love that the petals on these ones look like they've been painted and you can still see the brushstrokes. 
 
 
 Whoever knew that there were so many different types of tulip?

  3. I'm a bit surprised that it gets cold enough in your winter to force the bulbs to bloom.
