On the road

Yesterday we were on the way to the tulip fields in the North East polder with endless wind turbines on the dike. I don't drive so I can make photos of the ride.

Sometimes the road raises up and changes into a bridge.

Passing farmlands with cows in the open air after a winter staying in stables.

A farmer busy ploughing the land.

Huh? Don't know what the Eiffel tower is doing here.

It seems we are to early at the tulip fields, not much blooming yet.

A bit colour at last.

Well this is red isn't it?

  2. I am so happy to see those tulips. Last week I saw a bit of it on televise and so wished that I could see them in bloom in your country! Road trips are very pleasurable when one is the passenger, enjoying the scenery and snapping photos. Thanks for your travelogue!

  3. Wij waren er gisteren en helaas ook te vroeg. Misschien lukt het ons om over een weekje nog eens te gaan. Ik had tuinenadresjes mee, dus wij hebben ons wel vermaakt. Mooie foto's heb je toch nog kunnen maken van bloeiende velden. Die Eiffeltoren hebben wij ook gezien, maar ik was niet zo snel om er een foto van te maken.

    1. Grappig dat je er ook was, vorig jaar waren we te laat, was er ook niets te zien, dus we dachten dat zal ons niet nog eens overkomen....:)

    2. Vorig jaar waren wij er op 5 mei, dat was ook te laat. We hebben toen de showtuin in Creil bekeken, dus dat was nog niet helemaal voor niets.

  13. Dearest Marianne,
    But the last photo is full of color and thus rewarding after all. I find this the hardest thing to pin-point for anything blooming. It varies from year to year and even from week to week. But you showed some great photos, even with the bridge drawn up; interesting for most people that are not familiar with such a sight.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  14. This is a most interesting road trip with many splendid photos and much colour. I love the windmills all lined up in a row and the lovely red and pink of the tulips in bloom. I once saw an aerial photograph of an entire tulip farm with all the colours blooming - and it was a sight to behold. Thanks for the visuals from your road trip. :)
