you can tell that spring is not far off in germany. dotted amongst the cold blistery days are the occasional warmer ones. flower shops are full of daffodils and my favorite flower, tulips!
i am constantly comparing the prices of the u.s. to the prices here, but the one thing that you can find much, much cheaper in deutschland is flowers! the last few weeks i have made it a point to fill the house with tulips and it doesn't cost much to do so.
a wonderful event that is coming up is the opening of the keukenhof gardens. i have never seen so many amazing colors in my life. there are over 4.5 million tulips at keukenhof, and it is the most photographed place in the entire world! needless to say that me and my camera will be going, along with a friend who will be visiting from the u.s. i can't wait!
take a look and come enjoy a minute to smell the...tulips
