The Greenery In Holland

arrrrrrrrrrrrgh, lost all the text I originally entered for this post during the downtime my sites had. Will try and remember what I was thinking about roughly…

Two types of Greenery, the first are coming, the second are at the end of the post, click the Continue Reading or similar link…

1) Shot out the window of the bus to Keukenhof (having changed forms of transport at Leiden, with a stop off to Double A, a coffeeshop a little off the beaten track. Tulip fields abound in this area. May well do a separate post for Keukenhof itself, these photos are all from a collection I posted at a couple of Amsterdam Coffeeshop forums a while back.

Here we have a pretty water fountain/sculpture at the entrance to the gardens.

A shot of a man playing with his organ in Holland. Wonder if that will get me any search engine based traffic 😉

Irina sat on a bench, before we split ways. She went around looking at all the pretty plants. Having smoked a few myself by this day during our vacation, I decided to mellow out on a bench.

The next couple of pictures are of the flowers to be found in Keukenhof. Ira took a lot of good snaps here, so I’ll try and dig the others out…

Ira sat in a wicker chair at a cafe where they were happy for schmoking with your meal, if you sat outside. Rock In, Roll Out apparently. Which reminds me, I’ll post up the Amsterdam POIs sometime soon.
