Tulips in City Park

Planted in mid-January each year, 14,000 tulips bloomed at Big Lake in New Orleans City Park. It is a labor of love as The City Park Horticulture Department plants each bulb by hand and it takes the team of six over 20 hours from start to finish. Some tulips have interesting names including: Apricot Parrot, World’s Favorite, Happy Family, Purple Dream, and Blushing Lady.

Each year I always love to visit the bloom as it often falls around the time of Mardi Gras. I try to take interesting photos of the beautiful blooms. It is a popular site for families to take photos as the flowers appear and mark the beginning of the Spring season. Springtime is a wonderful time in City Park to be out in nature for some exercise with perfect temperatures and lots of sunshine.
