Tulip Popular, May 9, 2016

Tulip Popular tree blooms, Tishomingo County, Mississippi, USA, April 30, 2016
I spent the last week-end in April at a Camp Bluebird for Cancer Survivors. I went for a walk on Saturday morning and found these blooms on the trail, apparently blown down in Friday night's windstorm. A bottled water made an improvised vase. There are Camp Bluebirds all across the United States. I highly recommend them as a time of relaxation and refreshment for adult cancer survivors.

Have a Beautiful Week!

  1. Tulip Tree (Lirodendrum tulifera) is one of my favorite trees.

  2. They look very pretty. I see them here on the ground too. I have never heard of Camp Bluebird before. What a wonderful idea.

  3. Did not realize you were a Cancer Survivor Lea. Congratulations and what a great idea Camp Bluebird is. I'm glad you had a relaxing/renewing time. So important. Thank you for sharing the bouquet, which is lovely.

  4. I love the vase for the flowers!

  5. These are beautiful. We have a tree in our yard, but the blooms are so high up I could never pick one. It's a very old tree. These blooms are also a different color and composition from ours. Now you are making me wish I was young again and could get out the tall ladder and see if I could reach and pick one. So pretty. Thanks for your visit to my blog. genie

  6. Hallo Lea, I'm glad you had a good time. And this flowers I have never seen. They are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing them.

  7. Sounds like a fun relaxing weekend, Lea, the tulip poplars are very pretty and geometric with the orange bands.

  8. Those are very pretty.


I enjoy your comments!
