Pink Saturday

Another Pink Saturday again. Doesn't time fly. This weekly meme is hosted by the gracious Beverly from How Sweet the Sound. A few days ago we visited "Keukenhof" the most beautiful spring garden in the world" I made many, many pictures and for the first couple of days I will be showing some of them. I picked some with pink for today. Notice that all these beautiful flowers are grown inside . The park is full with still growing tulips and narcissus amongst other flowers but they are not in full bloom yet. That will take a few more weeks and then I would love to go again to see all that. It must be fantastic.



The hyacinths and tulips on these photo's are in grown in pots probably inside.

For more pink photo's go to Beverly's blog, there is a list of all the participants of this beautiful day.

Now please notice that I have a give away.

I have been to Holland on a couple of short breaks but never visited
Keukenhof, another place to add to the list. I am looking forward to seeing some more of your photographs, these ones are wonderful.
Have a good weekend, Jackie.

Good Morning Riet or Good Evening,
I wish that I could reach inside the computer and pick these beautiful flowers. Or, better yet, just lay down in a field of tulips and dream.

Such beautiful photos.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Beautiful flowers, I need their lift today. I love your header picture, I could just sit down in the middle of that field.

Dear Riet,
Your photos are beautiful! I most especially love the orchids. I have been on a break for blogging for a while trying to catch up on life! Ha! But I have enjoyed browsing some of my friends on Pink Sat. today. I am passing your link to my 15 yr. old daughter who is developing a big interest in photography. I'm sure she will love looking at your photos. She has just started a blog. : )

Oh, and I noticed that you have a photo of Esther Williams in your side bar. My daughter is a synchronized swimmer! What a coincidence. My older daughter swam too, when she was in high school.

I hope you get to go back and see the tulips when they are in full bloom. It will be a while here in mid-Michigan before we see any tulips. Happy Pink Saturday.


Tricia said...

Oh, and I forgot to say that I would love to be entered into your give-away. : )

Riet I think I am out of words for all the pink goodness in your beautiful pictures! The blooms are exotic in the mosaic and those tulips are realy too beautiful for my words to express. I am always humbled by the peace and loveliness that flowers bring into the world.
I cannot wait to see more.
