In April this year, I visited Garvan Woodland Gardens, in Hot Springs, Arkansas. My first time there, although it is a place high on my want-to-go-to list for some time. Mid-April was a little late for the tulips, which are reportedly spectacular, but there was still lots of colorful flowers covering the grounds.
So here are a few selected photos. Hope you enjoy!
Rhododendrons by the waterfall.
Some remnants of tulips in front of red flowers (no – I don’t remember what they are.)
Along a path, there was a late blooming river of tulips.
Here is a tight crop of the tulips from the “river.”

The Gardens have flowers in bloom throughout the spring and summer, but are well known for their tulips displays in early spring. Maybe next year…
Photos were all taken with the Sony Alpha 77, and the Sony 16-50 f/2.8 lens and the Minolta 100 f/2.8 macro lens.
