Tip Top Tulips In Full Bloom in Ispwich

The tulips at the Tip Top Tulips Farm in Ipswich (take the road right next the Dairy Queen and follow your nose to the tulip field) are in full bloom and they are spectacular. We went yesterday and the field was full of families, senior citizens and young couples. It’s a great photo opportunity in an open friendly atmosphere. Open daily, but on the weekends there are some additional activities such as goat yoga (?!?!) and farm animals. There were a lot of visitors but we did not feel crowded. Tickets are reasonably priced.

We had purchased some presale tickets which allowed us to pick-our-own tulips (15 with each of these tickets) or they are $1 each. It’s an efficient operation with parking assistance as well as help packing up your blooms. I am a big fan. It would be a GREAT Mother’s Day activity. Looking forward to returning for the sunflower field,

Memories of being in the natural world inspire the color and gesture of the paintings.  Gardens, overgrown fields, open space, the sea and wind are all a source from which the paintings evolve. Color and light fascinate me, how one color placed next to another comes alive, how that color then has the profound ability to evoke a mood or a place. While my process is intuitive, the presence of the landscape is constant. Yet, there is uncertainty of place and of resolution. I find this ambiguity most exciting.
