I went to the Minnesotan Chanhassen Arboretum this spring. I was inspired to take this photo by the beauty of the tulips. I am a big nature lover and these tulips were just the most gorgeous, fresh spring blooms in the entire arboretum. I think the message of spring is a time of renewal, a time of hope and persistence. The tulips resemble just that. When tulips are planted, they’re done so in the fall. Six to eight inches underground, they tough out the winter, staying strong and continuing to be hopeful. Then, as spring washes over, they emerge courageously from underground and with pride bloom into the most stunning buds! Their message is a message of persistence and hope – worth learning from – and definitely worth photographing!
