Arundel Castle Tulip Festival 2019 Review

The Coronavirus shutdown has involved the cancellation of many of 2020 major events in the horticultural calendar. It allows time to review and catch up with my increasing stock of floral photographs. Some of my best photos of 2019 were taken on a glorious April day at Arundel Castle’s Tulip Festival with my sons. Tulips have inspired great passion down the ages in gardeners. A form of photographic Tulip mania overtook me as I took pictures from every angle. I created a collage of some of my favourite close-ups.

It wasn’t all about Tulips. Some of my other favourites follow:

Tulips have 3 petals and 3 sepals (that look deceptively like petals). In the centre of the flower is the pistil containing the ovary, style and stigma. Around the pistil are 6 stamen formed of anthers with the pollen and filaments. © Karen Netto (Andrews)
