Tulips at Cheekwood

 Mz Bubbles and Kitty Justice standing at the entrance of the gardens. 
 From our positions if you looked to the left you would see the above photo and to our right are the two below photos. 


The above photo is a close up of the tulips. We spent half the day wondering the gardens and the other half checking out the Miniatures in The Museum. The Miniatures are images on Ivory which were carried by a loved one before the photograph came into being. They had mirrors behind several of the miniatures so you could see the back of the cases which often had locks of hair of the person's whose image you were gazing upon. If you go do take time to read and admire each one. They are Fabulous. 
The Kitty Justice is you are not allowed to tip toe through the tulips.

Yes, Cheekwood is one of Nashville's treasures. I bet the Biltmore has more than 55,000 tulips since it is larger. Have fun. Peace

Jackie

Thanks for sharing this beautiful garden. I love tulips, but we sure can't grow them this far South. Hope you stayed safe last night-just rain here.
