When we arrived at the gate we realized entrance was by online reservation only. We had driven over 20 miles to get there so we would not be defeated. We made a u-turn and tackled the website. After a couple of tries we had our tickets. It was a beautiful sunny day.
Spring Birthday Tulips
Next to the Cherry Blossoms by the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC, are beds of tulips. It isn’t a huge area but it is a wonderful splash of color. It is kind of like a mini Keukenhof (in the Netherlands). Actually if you know the Netherlands at all, you could imagine it being the Keukenhof at Madurodam. Madurodam is a park in the Hague filled with miniature villages, people, farms, roads, cars. I saw the miniature White House on display there once. My mother used to live right next door to Madurodam. My mother loves tulips. It is my mother’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Mom!
I bet a few of you have been to the Keukenhof in the Netherlands. My mother fell in love with tulips when they moved to The Hague. I sent her tulips for Mother’s Day. Here are some for you.
