Curls of Delight.

I was so taken with this particular flower. I chose it predominantly for its colour, but I did also notice the curls. Once it was in a vase on the table, I was eye level with this beauty and was fascinated by its curls. The shape and the way the colours follow the curves really…

The Hague & Madurodam

While in Amsterdam, I took a bus tour, from Amsterdam up to The Hague, and then Madurodam, then Rotterdam and finally Delft. Here are some photos from Madurodam (except the first one, which is The Peace Palace in The Hague). Madurodam is a miniature village – a little park, where they have built 1:25 scale…

Beautiful Drama.

I love this one as well (honestly, I’m not sure I can pick a favourite). It began to rain lightly while we were photographing the tulips, and the temperature dropped, but it didn’t deter us, we had something new to photograph – capturing those droplets sitting on such vibrant petals. x desleyjane

Floratuin Julianadorp 1

On Sunday, we drove from Amsterdam to Julianadorp to see the tulips. It’s a tulip farm, with so many different varieties of tulips on display, in small garden beds, and a big area where you can pick your own tulips to take home. Of course, we could not resist photographing all of the wonderful varieties.…

Ruffled Beauty

I wish I’d made a note of the names of the tulips. Some were very imaginative, and some were perfectly fitting. This one is sublime, is it not? The colours, the vibrancy, the ruffles, and the dance of petals. Love 💕 x desleyjane
