Photographer's Note

Tulips in istanbul...

Every April since 2006, the city government in Istanbul has planted three million tulips in Istanbul's parks, avenues, traffic roundabouts and...really anywhere there is open ground.

The result is a glorious spring flower festival with brilliant splashes of color everywhere you look:

The tulips begin to bloom around the end of March or beginning of April, depending on the weather. They bloom for several weeks and may delight the eye and the spirit for nearly a month.
