Last Tuesday was a free day at the Boerner Botanical Gardens. The tulips are out in full force now and couldn’t be more stunning. While there isn’t too much else blooming at the gardens right now, you’d never know it from these pictures because the tulips are so abundant and so colorful. The free day happened to be chilly, overcast, and rainy, which meant there weren’t many people there and the lighting was perfect for flower photography.
In addition to the tulips, there are a few beautiful patches of ferns at the botanical gardens right now.
Also, can we talk about how gorgeous the blooming trees are right now? Every year I have to take a bunch of pictures of these blooms. It never gets old.
Finally, while I was in Whitnall Park for the botanical gardens, I had to stop by the large waterfall briefly. Not surprisingly, it’s running very full right now.
The Boerner Botanical Gardens offers a select number of free days for Milwaukee County residents. They also have Thursday evening concerts in the summer, which are free for everyone and include access to all of the gardens. Free days, hours, and regular admission prices are posted here.

Amazing photos. I’m so glad you shared. I’m craving warmer weather and flowers. It’s finally starting to get warm and I can’t wait for it to get a little warmer.
I love your beautiful photos! Here in NYC they planted a lot of the kind of tulips that have lots of petals and look kind of like peonies this year.

I love tulips in all the various colors, but soft pink are my favorites! That is a beautiful garden and surroundings!
Such beautiful flowers! I haven’t seen tulips (in real life) in years.
That waterfall is so pretty! But, those tulips – gorgeous; and your pictures of them are awesome! I love the sheer number of tulips at the botanical gardens!
What lovely photos! I wish I could see those tulips in person. They are difficult to grow near where I live because the deer find them so tasty.
Such stunning photo’s! You managed to capture the beautiful colors of each Tulip in your photos. A perfect day at the Boerner Botanical Gardens
