Today’s photo was contributed by Marisa of MarisaWilliams.com. On an otherwise dreary spring visit to Amsterdam in 2002, she and her friend took advantage of one of the few dry days to visit Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse. If you like flowering gardens and tulips in particular, this is the mother of all such situations. More than 7 million bulbs burst with color here annually, and it’s truly a sight to behold. According to the park’s planners, the ideal time to view the blooms is the last two weeks of April or the first week of May, which is precisely when she had the good fortune to go. Of the many (many) beautiful beds of tulips, this pale yellow patch moved her the most.

I invite you to share a recent post that you loved: either your own’s or someone else’s, travel-related or not. I’ll keep the love going by commenting, tweetingfacebooking and/or stumbling the post. I’m looking forward to building up some good blogging karma and hopefully discovering some gems that I wouldn’t find on my own.


  • Thanks for featuring my photo, Christine! And I’ll share with you a little of the fun that we’ve been having here in the San Francisco area, since you’ve been away …


    I didn’t see any snow. Boo! I so wanted it to snow. It sure feels cold enough (still).

  • LOVE the tulips! One of my favorite flowers.

    My mom told me about the possible snow in San Francisco! So ridiculous–I can’t believe I’m missing it! Pretty bummed, although I spent the weekend on the beach, so I guess I can’t complain too much! Thanks again for the photo, it’s gorgeous 🙂

    I went to Amsterdam for the first time in November and was so bummed that I was obviously going to miss the tulips! Definitely need to go back during spring!!!

  • You didn’t miss anything. It never *really* snowed and the news people just kept apologizing for getting everyone so excited for nothing. And my pleasure! Glad you like the photo.

  • Thank you for your kind words, Lindsey!
