Tiptoe Through the Tulips

Filed in Gather Life & Style Essential by on April 7, 2011 0 Comments

Saturday I spent the springy afternoon at Centennial Park, in Nashville, TN.  My main purpose was to visit the tulip garden, but I took my time, roaming.

The first thing you spot at Centennial Park is the Parthenon, a full-scale replica.  Inside is a museum.

I wandered around the columns for a bit…

…and then noticed some kites flying around outside.

On my way to the tulips, I stumbled upon this vibrant tree….

definitely one of my favorites.

And then I tiptoed through the tulips for awhile….

I played around with some solar flares too.

Then the prom kids came out…

But I continued along…

And then, this tree helped me find where I had parked.  I loved its character.
