Touring Keukenhof Gardens in Holland



It's Spring in Holland! Rain, rain and more rain!
The cooler temperatures are a benefit to Keukenhof - the Tulips   have never looked more beautiful.
We have been busy touring and are finally getting around to looking at the many photos we have taken.
Enjoy them!

Willow trees and Golden Retrievers

Willow trees, the first ones to get their leaves in the Spring...and the last ones to lose their leaves.

Look at those fat buds, getting ready to burst into leaf.

Benji the Golden had just been washed and groomed. He went out for 5 minutes and rolled in a patch of spilled motor oil. Needless to say, we were not impressed with His Smelliness.

Which is where the Sheep come into the picture, I threatened to replace him with the sheep.

Here is the culprit , busy trying to talk his way out of it!!

We will be OPEN this week on Wed. 11-5, and Thurs. Noon-6.
