Hope to see you all on the Blog Tour this week. My blog will be featured in Tuesday so have to get that post ready tomorrow to go live at 12:01 am Tuesday. Haven't managed to get it right on time yet - so maybe this time is the charm!
I'll be posting about my block, Tulip Flurry, which was inspired by a trip we took to The Netherlands in 2012. A beautiful trip topped off by a visit to the amazing gardens at Keukenhof - never seen so many varieties of tulips and orchids as well - mid boggling!
Keukenhof is only open a short time every year, they even rent their swans for the river. Could have spent a number of days here - just beautiful!
Previous to going to Keukenhof we had visited a tulip farm where they grow tulips - but only sell the bulbs. So the tulip flower is chopped off and discarded. We kept insisting there must be some use, but no, they're compost. The tulips we buy in this country are raised in greenhouses, never in a field. The tulips in this next pix were being forced under plastic just for the tourists as the cooler weather had made the blooms about 2 weeks behind their usual schedule. It was incredibly windy that day and very cold - poor tulips!
So, in my block, which I'll be able to share with you on Tuesday on the tour, the tulips have lots of movement, just like these.
Hope to see you there! Just use the link at the bottom of the this poster and you'll be at the tour - Enjoy!
