This is in response to photography 101, day 11 assignment – Pop of Color.
The winter at Minnesota is harsh and long, usually lasting from late October to late March. Tulip is such strong plant, it is always the very first to break the frozen soil and bloom through the cold weather soon after the last patch of snow melts away.
I especially love those red tulips, since they were as warm as flame and helped me come out from the winter blue every time I spotted them on the fields.
Right now at Minnesota we are surrounded by snow, but we believe that the buds of tulips are resting underneath the ground to get ready to send out the first sign of next spring.
