More Tulips from Cheekwood

 I always take a photo of this bench with the beautiful flowers. This time lots of tulips. 
 This area is horizontal to the first photo and it leads you into the next area in the following photo.

 These are close ups of the tulips in the area above. 

 This is at the end of the area before you turn to go either to the Japanese Gardens or around the ponds. Your choice but do go see each one if you get here. 
 I am looking down the hill from the Mansion's area. 
This is the back area of the first photo and you can tell by the large evergreens in the middle of the flower bed. 
If the petals did not fall off last night from our hard and windy rain, I would suggest you spend a day in the tulips. 
Cheekwood will have another Light Installation opening May 24 and running until November 10th. The artist is the acclaimed British artist Bruce Munro. There will be a Field of Lights , 20,000 lighted glass spheres , each rising from the ground on a slender stem. It will look as if the night is aglow with a field of glass flowers. It will be a grand sight and the grounds will be a lighted fantasy world with other displays too. The hours on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be extended until eleven p.m. 
The Kitty Justice if you missed the tulips do not miss the light display.
