Yesterday we celebrated Queensday here in Holland. Queensday is a special holiday to celebrate the Queens birthday. It comes with a lot of festivities in the whole country during this day. One festivity is free-market. At first it was planned for children to sell their old toys or whatever on the streets and make some pocketmoney but these days many market sellers are also there to sell their goods. My grandchildren were selling their stuff also this year so of course we were there to buy something from them. I only have a photo of Mike(grandson) selling me some orange gerbera’s. They came from a friend.
There is a lot of orange on this day as our queen is from the Orange family. Many people wear something orange during this day as you might see on a couple of photo’s. The streets are full of people during this day and we were so lucky to have the most beautiful weather so they were even fuller now but everybody was happy and enjoying themselves.
And how about these beautiful ostriches. They were parading the streets . The top photo I made special with picasa. I never saw this before.
