Spring Tulips at the National Cathedral

I love the National Cathedral's Bishop garden. While it's most impressive in the summer (there's an amazing rose garden and a great variety of other flowers), I was thrilled by the abundant tulip blooms. The garden was much less crowded on this visit than any of my previous summer visits.
As you can see from the artwork embedded in the stone wall, the National Cathedral's gardens have delights for the eyes all year.
Although I live not too far north of Washington DC, I'm in a completely different planting zone and our tulips have just barely started to bloom.
Going south to see favorite flowers before they bloom in my area helps extend the season (as does going north after they finish in my area).
I hope you enjoyed this mini tour of the National Cathedral's Bishop garden's tulip beds. May God bless the National Cathedral's staff and may He bless you too!
