Saturday Snapshot - Remembering Spring at Keukenhof

Back in 2005, my husband and I lived in Baden-Wurttemberg, a state in Germany. We had some friends come to visit us in the springtime, so we took them for a short trip to Amsterdam and the surrounding area. One of our side trips was to Keukenhof Gardens, near Lisse. It was the height of bulb season and we really were in awe. Here are a few pictures from that day. The last is a photo of me and my best friend, Nancy. We were positively ecstatic about being together in the Netherlands in springtime! 

I'm sharing these photos because we really need a shot of Spring here in the Northeast - it's still really cold and blustery in New Hampshire - there were snow showers this morning and there's an ugly rumour going around that we're due for a Northeaster on Monday. 

Oh dear, crocus and daffodil season seems a long way off!

Head on over to Alyce's blog to see what others are sharing for this week's Saturday Snapshot!


  1. Wow! Susan! Wow!
    Those pics would brighten up anyone's world.
    I must plan to be in Amsterdam in spring the next time I visit (along with a few other thousand people I guess!!)

  2. Those are really impressive beds! We could use some spring here. I have a daffodil blooming, but it's going to be covered in snow tomorrow.

  3. Such gorgeous shots. We have a jigsaw of a Dutch park, it looks quite similar to your third photo, I think it might even be the same park. I would love to see Holland in the spring. You certainly do look thrilled to be there.

  4. We are surrounded by snow and ice again and, like you, badly in need of some spring cheer, so thank you for sharing these beautiful photos. No Snapshot from me this week, because I only got back from Mum's yesterday, but I like to see what everyone is doing!

  5. oh wow...what beautiful flowers...amazing....just what i needed as well after the cold and snow we have had this week...come on spring...smiles.
