Tulip display in the Flower Walk Garden; Longwood Garden, Pennsylvania

Earlier in the spring I visited Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania at just the peak of the tulip season. There were thousands of visitors, agog like me, at the spectacular tulip display. I confess to thinking they were in my way – couldn’t they see I was a professional ?! How the heck was I supposed to get a nice “clean” shot?

In all honesty, I really did not think that for long. I had already been admitted into the garden early in the morning, and had spent hours in the meadow and other parts of the huge garden. Only as I left and walked through The Flower Garden Walk, after the gardens were officially opened, did I see the crowds.

I was fun to see so many people enjoying the garden, all happy to be in such beauty. Well maybe I am reading too much into why they were happy. There were lots of kids who just seemed happy to be out with their buddies.

I gave the photographer in this photo a little advice – perhaps she should come to where I was standing and look back into the flower garden. I don’t think they cared really.

The story here is not so much about the garden, but people enjoying the garden.
