not just tulips

It’s the change of season which reminds me of our visit to Keukenhof in the Netherlands last year. When I tell my Dutch friends I actually enjoyed this they picture my tall frame amidst the many Asian tourists posing on my hunches in front of thousands of pastel-colored tulips and laugh, of course!

Yes, the tulips are an important element of the park but there is plenty of inspiration for real gardeners as well. Just to show you a few examples…

and diamonds in the snow…

The rolling hills of the Bavarian landscape are so beautiful covered in white, especially when the sun pops out. It’s the most “wintry” of the past winters we have spent here and funny enough the one I’ve enjoyed most. And not just because of the great skiing!
