Last week I brought Monkey boy to the Tulipmania  at the Flower Dome.  I have been wanting to see the  20,000 Tulips that were imported for the display  from Netherlands.  The flowers really very colourful.

We saw the trademark  Holland  wooden clogs and couldn’t resist to take a photo with it. I love the drawing on the shoes.

The “sea” of tulips.

There were many lovely tulips and they were of many different colours.  The tulips filled up the entire basement of the Flower Dome.

I love the vibrant yellow of this tulip. It really does brighten up your day if one were given a bunch of these tulips on a  special occasion.

Looking at the windmill reminded me so much about the time I had in Holland when I visited the country when I was a teenager. I’m hoping to be able to bring the kids there one day.

A lovely two coloured bloom. The light parts of the petals are accentuated by the dark pink giving it more volume and a better visual appeal.

These pink blooms were very pleasant to the eyes.  I wouldn’t mind having a bunch to put on my dining table at home.

Were you looking at any flowers this week?
