Tip toe through the tulips........

The above are some close up pictures of a few of the lovely tulips and one of the windmills at the Tesselaar Tulip Farm.

Everyone working at the Tesselaar Tulip Farm is dressed in national costume. The day I visited was the start of all the lovely rain we have had falling in Victoria. The colourful umbrellas brighten up the dull day.

As you can see all the fields are covered by the colour of the tulips. The lady walking beside the tulips reminds me of Sunbonnet Sue!

During the months of September and October the Tesselaar Tulip Festival is held each year at Silvan in the Dandenongs. The day I visited the festival it started to rain. It did not dampen the spirits of the visitors. There is lots to see and is well worth a visit.

Hi Nessie,

Beautiful pictures of one of my favourite flowers. Must be because both my maternal grandparents were born in Holland!

The farm looks like a lovely place to visit. Thanks for sharing with us.
