Show & Tell - Tulips

Show and Tell
First, I would like to thank Kelli for the warm welcome and I'm looking forward to seeing you guys every friday!

Yesterday night, I went to the supermarket just shopping for our weekly needs. There were lots of things to buy whose packages are pretty good. Look what I have found!
They said "when the door leads to spring, bring those tulips in the house". The frenzied winter season is still here.... Tulips are one of my esteemed flowers, may be third one after the roses and calla lillies . They are gracefully refined and vividly distinctive. Fortunately, I am living in Europe, so its easy for me to get some of Holland tulips. Holland is the birthplace of the tulip in the spring.

Some tips who wants to travel in Holland It’s a country that have full of salutary surprises. Their local customs like handshake is the common form of greeting. Dining is fairly formal in the Holland with table manners.

  11. First of all, a warm welcome to the S&T community!

    When I am looking at your beautiful tulips, I am even more longing for spring!

    Yes, the Netherlands are a great country. When I lived closer to the German-Dutch frontier, we often went there for shopping and I am even able to speak a little bid of Dutch (I understand a lot but speaking is more difficult).

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I am always happy to have new visitors and I am glad that you like the things I made.

    Have a great week-end!

    Best wishes, Anita
