Outdoor and Watery Wednesday

Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan from a Southern Daydreamer and Watery Wednesday at WWW.Waterywednesday.blogspot.com . These two memes I love to participate in.
Today I have a few more photo´s from the Keukenhof, this time some of the art that is shown in the park.There are two pictures in this mosaic that show some so called Russion dolls. This year the idea for the show is `From Russia with Love` You know those Russian dolls that has a tiny doll in the middle and gets bigger every time with a bigger doll around it. Oh dear I hope I explained this ok, it is a bit difficult in a foreign language.

I love to look at art in a park. You explained the Russian nesting dolls very well. We see them in gift shops here -- I can't think of the word for them either just now. But the sculptures are beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Riet! I had a lot of catching up to do! Love this post...I have some of those Russian dolls, too! The lambs are so cute! But you know I really enjoyed the tour of the Delft factory! Maybe one day I can do that in person! Until then I enjoyed seeing all of the blue and white! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie
