The Keukenhof




After class in Bunschoten yesterday, Lya and I hightailed it to the other side of Amsterdam to the town of Lisse, a garden famous for its incredible show of spring flowers, particularly the Dutch bulbs raised here. I only have one word to describe it: Wow!

Let me share some of the beauty with you...



































































These magnificent trees -- I think they are copper beech -- are at the end of their lifespan, and will be taken down and replaced with healthy young trees after this season. I am glad that I got to see them!


I took this photo of the countryside on our way back to Bunschoten:


And here is another mama sheep with her lambs:
