    Beautiful photos Ditter. I find myself looking at the second photo and thinking, hmm, 2 1/2" strips cut WOF in pinks, blues, reds, yellows and purples, what a lovely bright lap quilt for those dark winter days.

    Thanks, Ditter, for pushing a memory button in me. I spent part of my childhood living in the Netherlands. One of the things that stands out in my memory is our family trips to Lisse to enjoy the Keukenhof in the spring. Truly spectacular gardens known for their displays of tulips and other springtime favorites. I wandered out to their website after reading your post and thought I'd share it - http://www.keukenhof.nl/index/

    Inspiration at every turn!

    We once traveled to the Netherlands to see the tulips. They are gorgeous with varieties we'd never seen. Some blossoms were as big as my husband's hand. One word of advice if you think about going....remember tulips blossom in spring weather. I've heard of people who didn't think about it and went in the summer and were diappointed that they didn't see any tulips!

    During WWII the Dutch royal family came to Ottawa to escape the Nazis. The queen gave birth to one of her daughters while being ln exile. Since after the war, the Dutch government sends thousands of tulips bulb to our government every year. They usually bloom the second week of May. The city is beautiful, that is now the Tulip Festival and you are welcome! Thanks Ditter, your beautiful pictures allowed me to mention a fact easily forgotten in Canadian history.
