Built in 1926 for Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kelley King, this 47 acre estate in Mansfield, Ohio opened as a public garden in 1953.
The gardens change season to season, but the most popular display is the tulips in May. Every year the staff plants more than 55,000 tulip bulbs for a brilliant display in the spring. When the tulips are done, they are replaced with over 35,000 annuals.
When I saw that the peak for the tulips coincided with my yearly Wade and Gatton hosta farm trip (more on that later), I decided to go see the tulips since it was in the same general vicinity.
I will feature the tulips in this post and do a separate post for some of the other blooms due to the amount of photos.
I love how perfectly they match the bricks.
Sorry....I could have done an entire post just on these gorgeous ones. LOVE!!!
