Tulips Everywhere

Here are a couple photos that I snapped around town. They were taken with my Canon D30 and the 100mm Macro lens.

Despite the profuse number of yoshino cherry trees that are blooming, my eyes were drawn to a few patches of tulips. I am not sure why they fascinate me, but they do. Perhaps it is the huge variety of shapes, colors, and varieties of tulips...maybe it is just that it is really doesn't seem like spring until they are out.

Unfortunately, at my house, I live in a spot that used to be ocean front property (a few million years back). A block or two up the road, they have real dirt, but at my house, it is all sand.....which tulips do not seem to like. So they just don't do well here.
