Yes, that's Pella, Iowa. If you are familiar with Pella Windows, this is where they come from. It was almost Tulip Time and the tulips were going strong.

It is good to see these tulips in the multiple colors when the winter is settled and when flowers make absent. Beautiful composition

I read: "Pella was founded in 1847 by 800 Dutch immigrants led by Henry Peter Scholte. Before leaving the Netherlands, the immigrants decided to name their new home Pella, or City of Refuge, in the prairieland of Iowa."
Well, now I see it.

The tulips make an impressive "front" to your picture. The mill and surroundings round out this fine picture.

I thought tulip is a flower of spring.
