Tulip Time at the Garvan Gardens, Hot Springs

spring 09 059Take one beautiful spring day, two innkeepers with the day off (enjoying the fine company of their 14 month old grandson Blaine), add 100,000 tulips in bloom–and we found the ingredients for a perfect day. 

The Tulip Extravaganza is on in full force at the Garvan Gardens, through March 31.  Tulips in blazing yellows, reds, purples, oranges, whites, pinks; some with multiple layers of petals.  Obviously, I do not know the real names of the tulips varieties, but I simply enjoy their breathtaking beauty. 

If you can getaway for a couple of days, Lookout Point Lakeside Inn offers the Tulip Extravaganza special through April 2.  Simply stay two weeknights, and receive two complimentary tickets to the Garvan Woodland Gardens (a savings of $17.50).  Just mention this offer when you make the reservation, and valid only on Sun-Thur.  Happy Springtime!
