I have included some of the pictures I captured below, but I also created a slideshow with them, which features Mr. Chet Atkins playing "Tiptoe Through the Tulips," as only he could play it. I love that song, and it's a perfect background for my tulip pictures. I hope you will listen to at least part of it -- it's such a happy little song, and I guarantee that you will be tapping your toes right along with Chet.
Here are some of the tulips I tiptoed through (or through which I tiptoed, if you prefer).
I love the way the center of this tulip resembles a cross silhouetted by the sun filtering through the petals ...
The apricots were my favorites, and only God knows the formula for the colors found in them.
The word lagniappe, as defined by Webster's, means "something given or obtained gratuitously, or by way of good measure."
"Time never turns backwards
Its old charms to give,
In photographs only
Can yesterdays live."
