Tiptoeing Through The Tulips


A visit to The Table Cape
Tulip Farm had me revisiting
the Tiny Tim song.

The spectacular sight
of all the colour of rows and
rows of tulips sets this
flower lovers heart
a flutter.


The Tulip Farm was established
26 years ago and is now
one of the largest in
the Southern Hemisphere.
The spectacular blooms play
a secondary role as it is the
bulbs themselves that are
sold all around the country
in Autumn.

The farm is on the North West tip
of our state overlooking
Bass Strait, the stretch of
water that separates us 
from mainland Australia.
Last week the very talented
Joni James of An Artful Closet
kindly included me in her
Round the World in 20 blogs
post.
The ferry featured in Joni`s post
travels this stretch of water.


I choose to dress quite
simply in good
old black and white
as I knew the colour of the tulips
would be the star of the show.
 Wearing black and white
straight leg pants from
Meredith and a flared
black light jumper.
Paired with a red, black and white
necklace and black and white bangle.
Coral brogues from last summer,
so comfortable for tip toeing.
I also bought my flowery tote along.


No man made colour
can ever compete with
the glorious colour
provided by Mother Nature.


On another note all together,
we have a new addition to
our family. An 8 week old
as yet unnamed puppy.
He is a little white fluff ball,
a Bischon Fris, Maltese cross,
cute as a button.



Joining Patti and all the other
colourful souls for Visible Monday.

  4. What a wonderful afternoon. We have tulip fields north of here about 40 miles or so. The bright color is amazing across fields like that.
    Speaking of that ferry, it looks enormous! Do you go to the mainland often?

    1. Tulips make a spectacular display en masse, always enjoyable for me to see.
      Regarding the ferry , it takes large trucks, caravans and cars , travel time about 12 hours. I must admit I have never been on the ferry, I prefer to fly.
