Spring Has Sprung

After an incredibly long and frigid winter, Spring has finally arrived in Chicago. At least I think it has.

The Keukenhof gardens in Lisse, the Netherlands. 2003

This is one of my favorite seasonal photos. It’s my daughter in 2003 at the Keukenhof gardens near Lisse, the Netherlands. An estimated 7 million flower bulbs are planted here every year. When they bloom, it’s an amazing sight to see. Nobody does springtime flowers quite like the Dutch.

I’m taking a blogging break this week to enjoy the school holidays with my family. I’ll be back to my regular posting schedule on Monday, April 7.

  1. What a sweet photo, Gwen! Enjoy your vacation. I hope you weren’t shaken up by the earthquake last Friday. :)

    • It was the night we arrived, Jill. We felt it as we relaxed in our hotel enjoying room service. The complete LA experience!

  2. And I bet those years have gone by in a flash! She looks so cute there with her flowers on her jeans.
    Enjoy your holiday, see you back soon :)

  6. I just returned from a week off for Spring break with my family.

    I love the tulips and the fact that Spring has finally sprung, at least here in Arkansas. I just posted a poem on Spring and a lovely photo of a tulip tree (I took pic last week) today.

    Enjoy your time off with your family.

  7. Enjoy your break Gwen! Cute photo!
