Flower Day In May, Island of Mainau, Germany, 5-2015

Tip toe from the garden
By the garden of the willow tree
And tiptoe through the tulips with me

That’s what Franz and I did this past weekend in Mainau Germany. Although we walked rather than tiptoed, nevertheless we welcomed the return of spring on the little flower island on the German side of Lake Constance. Every April thru September Mainau celebrates its annual flower festival. This year’s 2015 theme was Journey through Europe and the vibrant floral displays throughout the plantings reflected the different European regions. We reveled in the burst of colors and scents and particularly enjoyed the orchid show. Beautiful blooms for a beauteous day!
