voor Rachel

elk jaar is er in de Noordoostpolder een Tulpenfestival met een tulpenroute
en elk jaar neem ik me voor te gaan, maar doe het niet
ondanks dat het zo dichtbij is

maar vorige week op een avond reed ik een deel van de route
en maakte foto's, voor Rachel

for Rachel

every year there is a Tulip Festival in the Noordoostpolder with a tulip route
and every year I have the intention to go, but I never do
even though it is so close

but one evening last week I drove part of the route
and took pictures, for Rachel

  8. Dear Patrice,
    Yesterday morning I saw this post. All it took was "voor rachel" to start the tears in my eyes. As I scrolled down the tears rolled down as well. So beautiful, so vast, so unbelievable! I love me one tulip, but a sea of tulips!!!
    I thought about those tulips and your thoughtfulness all day. I thought about the trip that was supposed to happen. I realized how I have pushed down my disappointment, keeping a logical head. We will make the trip to Holland, I will see that sea of tulips for myself. If your photos take my breath away and bring me to tears, can you imagine how I will be when I see it first hand?
    This post was a gift, Patrice. Thank you so very much.
    I have an great love for this flower and an infatuation with Holland. I'd love to get to know it better. Someday, some spring, I'll be there. And I'll drop in and say hello to you, my friend!

  11. Dear Patrice,
    Its is so beautiful!
    Although we visited the amazing tulip fields three week ago- it is still overwhelming in the beautiful picture you've been taking...

    Thank you for your warm, lovely comment at my blog ...off course, I forgot to mention that it was a scooter that hit us(but I added that later on my blog...),
    love, Hagar.

  12. what can be more beautiful than the sea of colors, in a form of a flower!

  13. thank you Patrice! for thinking of me :)

  14. Sometimes we do not appreciate what is on our own doorstep. I am sure you must have been pleased that you made the effort for Rachel. Absolutely beautiful.
