Tulips & a Frog!

Yesterday my father suggested I go to Table Cape today to see the Tulips in bloom on a farm, so I did. It took me over 1 hours to get there. A lovely drive along the North West of Tasmania by the sea with beautiful views of very green hills down to the sea, with sheep and cattle scattered in the paddocks.

The farm grows the Tulips for an International market, their main aim is to see how large they can get the bulbs. The paddock of Tulips is rather small at 8 hectares = 20 acres but a lot of Tulips.

I stopped the car at a lookout to view the sea and happened to look sideways and saw a frog hopping on the road, so at some distance from it I took the photo, and I amazed that it was similar colour as the bitumen.

    1. It appears to be big but it was only small, I zoomed with the lens then cropped the photo.

  4. Tulips are beautiful -- and frogs are just such happy little creatures, aren't they?
