Last Spring, I did something I never had before. I purposely went out in the rain to take photos of tulips. Please enjoy this collection taken in parks and gardens around Vancouver, Canada. This is Tulips in the Rain, and sometimes, after the rain.
I loved this double tulip with forget-me-nots… from the gardens of Queen Elizabeth Park.
Also in Queen Elizabeth Park, pretty yellow and cream tulips with a background of red azaleas.
I was fascinated with these twisted pink tulips. You will see many on this post. Taken after the rain at VanDusen Botanical Garden.
Another double tulip garden, this time with a deep purple variety!
The Big Drip… you wouldn’t believe how long I watched this drip on this double tulip in a planter at VanDusen Botanical Garden. I watched the drip get bigger and bigger and bigger until… well I moved on after 15 minutes, but I’m sure the drop was quite spectacular 🙂
Red reflection after the rain… Tulips of the Valley Festival, east of Vancouver.
Hang on critter! I wish you could see the full image here because the bug has its eyes on me. Very cute! Taken at Queen Elizabeth Park.
I believe this was at Stanley Park.
I visited this beautiful patch of tulips at VanDusen a few times including this occasion after a Spring shower.
Great mix of colour at this double tulip garden at Queen Elizabeth Park.
This tulip from the same garden had an interesting, odd shape.
I call this a Whisper and a Tear. I’m not sure what the daffodil bud said to the tulip but I hope it was nice. Queen Elizabeth Park.
This is most likely a botanical variety of tulips in a small patch at VanDusen Botanical Garden.
One of my favourite gardens at VanDusen, a beautiful mix of deep pink and white tulips. Let’s take a closer look…
Forget-me-nots and this pretty tulip near the fountain at Queen Elizabeth Park.
More with the twisted pink tulips. I still haven’t figured out the name but I hope it’s exciting. The first two photos were from Queen Elizabeth Park and the last two from planters at VanDusen.

Back to the very colourful planter at VanDusen.
I took these in the rain… double tulip garden at Queen Elizabeth Park.
I hope you enjoyed my post featuring tulips in the rain. I can’t wait to take more photos of tulips this Spring… in and out of the rain. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
