This past weekend was the annual Tulip Festival. I did a little research to figure out it's origin and found that Albany's (first) sister city was the city of Nijmegen, Netherlands. As a sign of thanks for post-war assistance to the Nijmegen, the city sent 50,000 tulip bulbs to Albany in 1948 which ultimately became the Tulip Festival.
A lot of the weekend revolves around music, but there are still Tulips involved. I have proof. I also have a new camera (the Nikon 1)
I do think that Tulips are my new favorite flower. I just can't decide on which variety.
