Tiptoeing Through the Tulips

Not really. This is Keukenhof Gardens, outside of Amsterdam. Very famous place. We took a bus tour there just to avoid the stress of having to find correct buses and stops by ourselves. (And, I think we have a Spanish gypsy curse on us now judging by the evil eye we got for sitting in the wrong seat on the bus.)

Seven million bulbs were planted this past fall to create this display.

Photos and videos can hardly do justice to the visual overload when you look out over the panorama.



This little girl was so cute. She kept dancing to the music, then realizing people were watching, would get shy and grab on to her brother. I was only able to catch this snippet of video (you can stop when the lady walks in as she didn't move away as I thought she would). Jason got some great pictures of her and her brother.

Oh - your third photo looks like someone spilled sprinkles all over the gardens!

And what is it with cats and suitcases?

Sounds like you had a fun trip!
