Tiptoe Through the Tulips

I'm not sure there is much to write that will make this say more than it says already.

We wandered through the Keukenfhof gardens for about 90 minutes on Wednesday evening and probably saw about 1/3 of all there was to see. Open from March 20 through May 18 this year, the Keukenhof is a historic park full of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and all the other Spring bulbs. I the midst of all of this are also exquisite works of art. (Can you imagine how much I enjoyed this?)

The sights. The scents. The sounds. It was extraordinary.

My favorites were the crocus. These "first" Spring blooms hold such hope of thing to come that are "better" at the end of a long winter.

I wish you could have all been here with me.

  1. Oh, the TULIPS you saw! Thank you for sharing the bounty with all of us. We have a Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival not far from here and I hope to go again this year. To see God's handiwork displayed in acres of exploding color makes my heart swell and imagine the beauties that await us in eternity.
