Sprung spring

I know, I know, tulips are all over this city and you've seen one, you've seen them all, but they sure are PRETTY!!! and after the long and arduous winter, we've been starved of colour and foliage and anything to do with pollen.  So I got myself over to Dows Lake and did a little tiptoeing.  They have some interesting 'breeds' (is that what you call it?) and I was snap happy with the camera.  Plus, my Dutch genes may make me more suceptible to the lure of the tulip.
