Spring Blossoms at the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival

Thanksgiving Point, in Lehi, Utah is well-known for its expansive and well-manicured gardens covering zillions of acres. Visitors of all ages enjoy discovering such delights as the "secret garden," a crashing waterfall, and endless flower displays all connected by winding stone paths and arched foot bridges. We took our grandkids and spent a couple of hours strolling through the gardens yesterday and were treated to the final glory of the annual Tulip Festival.

Tulips of every type, color, and size were evident everywhere we looked. Of course photographers and artists were taking advantage of the display and I threw in with some photos of my own. This summer there will be a big Plein Air Art Festival and painting competition in the gardens and I just might sign up. If nothing else the Tulips got our senses fired up for our trip to the Netherlands in a couple of weeks.
