Springtime in Holland

I know I’m biased when it comes to The Netherlands, but honestly, I can’t believe that there is a more beautiful place in Spring.  Don’t believe me?  Here is some proof:

Canal near our house

Everyday I take our dog for a walk.  What a beautiful view I get to see and enjoy!

Blooming tree

I love walking by this tree. It looks a bit like snow when its petals start to fall.

Spring flowers

I know what you’re thinking.  It’s Spring in Holland.  Surely you’ve got some tulips around.  Of course we do.  In fact, we have a few in our front yard.  They’re so pretty that I don’t want to pick them.  I just enjoy looking at them in the ground.  One thing I love here is when we go into Leiden.  There’s a farmer who sells flowers pretty cheaply.  Today we went by, and I saw that he was selling 5 bundles for 5 euros.  That’s 50 flowers for 5 euros.  Do the math!  You can’t get anything priced like that in America.  I brought them home, and they were too much for my large vase, so I had to add an additional vase.  Beautiful!
