My world Tuesday

For My World Tuesday I go on showing pictures from the "Keukenhof" the most beautiful spring garden in the World"
Today I start with all sorts of red tulips in the glass house. Those open red and white tulips are almost as big as an open hand. Stunning.
Please click on photo's to enlarge.

Beautiful, beautiful spring garden, Riet. My small handful of bulbs have about finished their bloom so I enjoy the encore offered by your shots.

Riet, way back in 1971 I went by bus from Frankfurt, Germany to see the famous Kuekenhof Gardens. I never say so many tulips in one place! Quite a sight and quite a memory for me. Thanks for sharing these fresh new pics of the gardens.

Hier kan je alleen maar over zeggen; 'mooi rood is niet lelijk'

Ger said...

.....Oh.....het lijken wel Engelse rozen....je rode tulpen met zoveel blaadjes.

En je header ook al zo voorjaars achtig, mooi!

Zou zo een grote....en dan bedoel ik echt 'n grote bos tulpen van je foto's willen plukken en in een grote glazen bolvaas willen zetten.
Kan me herinneren dat ik vroeger als kind bij de slagerswinkel binnenstapten, je weet wel zo'n echte.....met witte houten toonbank,alles wit betegeld, dikke witte houten koelceldeuren, witte houten bank waar je kon zitten wachten tot je geholpen werd....en dan stond op die toonbank een grote glazen vaas met tulpen met op de bodem paar koperen stuivers, die dienden ervoor om de bloemen langer houdbaar te maken...
Ik keek daar met veel bewondering naar als kind, en dacht dan altijd; dat doe ik ook zo als ik groot ben...

Lieve groet en fijne blogweek.

They look beautiful, I love tulips and always buy then when they are available in the shops or market, I will definitely have some on display over Easter and I now that they will have come from Holland, so the best!!.
I cannot grow them here in the garden as the squirrels eat the bulbs!!

The flowers sre truly beautiful. I can imagine how wonderful Holland must smell and how great it looks now.

Liz said...

All those tulips are gorgeous. I especially like the red and white ones. have you read Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach? It's a brilliant book all about how special some tulip bulbs were in the old days.
