After months of rain, spring has taken over in gold country. The tulip gardens in Nevada City are a rare and beautiful occurrence. Over ten thousand tulips grow in these gardens, with each flower being uniquely different. Tulips here come in every colour, from the bright yellow flowers to the rich violet, and they bring out the rich emotion of pure joy while people are in their presence. To me, these delicate flowers were a breath of fresh air after the winter. Spring is a time of growth and new beginnings – these tulips represent that idea perfectly.
