Wordless Wednesday 05/11/11--Tilting Tulips

Tuesday, May 10, 2011


Why are these tulips tilting to the side? I think it is because they are in the shade and they were trying to get to the sun!
Here are more photos from the front of Avis Campbell Gardens, at the United Way Building, in Montclair, New Jersey (right next to the Montclair Public Library).

You see, this tulips in the first photo below are NOT tilting because they are in the sunshine. It may look like they're in the shade of the sign, but the sun was right above them.

  5. Montclair has tulip committees, I believe. I mean it. Tulips are the town flower, and an important part of the "May in Montclair" celebrations.

  7. Beautiful! My 5 year old loves tulips. I promised him that we would plant a lot this fall for next spring.


    Funny! My husband comes from the Montclair area. He grew up in Bloomfield, and I think he lived in Montclair for a few years.

  11. Tulips are my favorite spring flower! Love the tilting ones - they are trying to follow the sun...I have cherry trees that are doing that! :)

  12. Tulips are so beautiful. I love them. I think that they are as pretty as roses, but without the pretensions or thorns.

  14. What stunning and lush flowers. The colours are amazing and they really add to the streetscape. I think you might be right about them leaning towards the sun - just like we humans, they must long for this time of the year. I love tulips - they are such happy flowers.
