Skywatch Friday.

Today I only can show blue skies because  that is what we had  lately.  Beautiful blue skies and lovely sunny weather, real spring.

Yesterday we went to visit the Keukenhof,  that beautiful  worlds largest only bulbs garden. Last year I posted a lot of  photo’s  which were mostly taken inside , in glass houses. It was earlier in the season so the tulips and and other flowers were not in bloom outside yet. This time I have only taken photo’s outside   and I made so many that it will take a few days to show some of them. We also passed the famous bulb fields. Mostly tulips and daffodils..More tomorrow.

Keukenhof

A lot of art is shown too but I will get to show that in a later blog.

Dat was dus genieten met een GROTE G Riet, een dagje keukenhof, nu op z'n mooist en met dit fantastische weer. Een dag om nooit meer te vergeten denk ik. Leuk de handen kunst, al net zo fleurig als de bloemenpracht. En ik ben benieuwd wat je ons nog allemaal meer gaat laten zien.

Fijne paasdagen gewenst,
liefs Josephine

My grandpa ( Chinese) said if I die, and you place me in such a beautiful place like your photos, I will come alive again.

I vividly remember the Keukenhof, even though I was only a child last time I visited it. I'd love to go back one of these springs, but it's rather a long way for me now. Great shots, and thanks for the memories!

Hoe mooi de strakblauwe lucht de laatste tijd ook is, spannende foto's levert het meestal niet op. Maar gelukkig zijn de bloemen en de bloesems nu op hun mooist, en dat is altijd goed voor wat fleurige plaatjes.
Maak er een mooi Paasweekend van.

Colorful! I love it! It looks like it is already Spring in your part of the world! I am jealous! :) Not so in Central Wisconsin!

Hope to see you at The Sky in my IDLENESS entry of mine!

What a lovely treat your last posts have been for me Riet. It is still very cold here and very windy, so I am living through your beautiful photos today. These tulip fields are gorgeous...to see them in person must be amazing!
Last night our overnight temperature was 20 degrees F. So cold...but surely Spring will come here too!
sending hugs...

Hoi Riet,

Wat ligt De Keukenhof er prachtig bij. Ik kan mij nog herinneren dat je er vorig jaar ook bent geweest. Wat gaat de tijd snel!

Ik wens jou en je familie hele gezellige Paasdagen.

Veel lieve groetjes van Madelief
