The Tulips

At the information center in Creil you can watch a show garden  full of different tulips.

The information center has a very pretty garden.

With some sculptures.

And places to sit and have a drink. The dog belongs to the center and liked to keep the visitors company as a real host.

And guess what, on our way home the bridge openend again!

I stepped out of the car to see what huge cargo ship was passing but I could only see two of those little sailing boats! That's why the whole traffic had come to a standstill.

  2. Oh, thank you for showing us these wonderful tulips! What a wonderful array of shapes and colors!

  3. And the "sailors" were no doubt smiling as they passed. :-)

  4. Tulips are one of my favorites. They grow well here but we don't have fields of them.

  5. Yes a very pretty garden Marianne.. So many different types of tulips! Must have been a yacht race or something :)

  10. Dearest Marianne,
    Oh my sure it doesn't look fair for so many cars having to wait for the drawn up bridge; only to let a few mini boats pass below...
    Your tulip photos are gorgeous and what lovely gardens.

  11. Gorgeous tulips! I love that they have a dog in the information center's garden.
    I just saw on google maps that Creil is quite close to Giethoorn.

  12. What a great place.
    And the dog-host is a beauty!:)
    I know there are organised trips from Norway to Holland to SEE the Tulips, and I saw some in your photos that I have never seen here up in the north of Europe.

  13. What a day - abel to see all those wonderful tulips.
