Baby tulip born in Lewes Tulip Festival

March 31, 2016

My confidence is growing! I finally submitted my first entry into a local photo contest. I hadn't matted a photo since the Photography 101 class I took at Flagler College several years ago. I'm hoping this baby pink tulip and its towering relatives don't wilt before being displayed in a tent beside Zwaanendael Museum at the Lewes Tulip Festival on April 7-9.

2014 was the first year I discovered the Lewes Tulip Festival in Delaware, since I apparently live under a moss-covered rock. Last year I missed it for the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C., which shouldn't be a surprise if you saw my cherry tree photo from Panera Bread last week. I am looking forward to attending the 2016 Lewes Tulip Festival.

Back in 2014, I blogged about two types of tulips that caught my camera's eye at the festival, Boston and Rembrandts Favorite. But the fairies told me to pick this tulip garden photograph to enter, so here it is!
