LAST WEEKEND WAS THE TULIP FESTIVAL IN OUR TOWN PARK. THEY PLANT THOUSANDS OF TULIPS ALL AROUND THE PARK EVERY SPRING. IT'S A GLORIOUS DISPLAY OF COLOR, MAKING IT EVEN LOVELIER TO WALK AROUND THE LAKE AND ALONG THE PATHS. I GAVE YOU A PEEK AT ONE PHOTO IN OUR WORDLESS WEDNESDAY POST, TIPTOEING THROUGH THE TULIPS. NOW I'LL SHARE THE REST OF THE PHOTOS OF PHOEBE'S DAY AT THE TULIP FESTIVAL.
I love this photo of the lake with the swans swimming serenely along, and pretty tulips lining the water's edge. These two swans make a nest every year and have babies, it's so sweet!
Phoebe sits and contemplates life among the tulips.
The tulips are everywhere, around the lake and along all the pathways! There are tons of different varieties and colors of tulips!
Phoebe is posing on one of the decks around the lake. A couple of fountains help aerate the lake to keep it clean (you can see one in the background). There are not only swans that call this lake home, but ducks, geese, fish and turtles all live in harmony on the lake!
So we never forget, the park created this 9/11 memorial to commemorate the attacks of September 11th, 2001. Many people in our town work in the Wall Street area. This memorial honors those in our community who lost their lives in the 2001 attacks in New York City. The vertical steel pieces of artwork that line the walkway to the memorial fountain were constructed of steel that came from the World Trade Center. The fountain is at the end of this walkway, but I wanted to be respectful and not disturb the people who were visiting it so I don't have a photo of that.
PHOEBE LOVED HER DAY AT THE TULIP FESTIVAL. THERE WERE SO MANY NEW SMELLS AND PRETTY FLOWERS, DOGS AND PEOPLE TO MEET & SNIFF. I HOPE YOU ENJOYED HER PHOTOS!
