One Year Ago

One Year ago today, I was in the Netherlands. Landed there with my husband and forty of my best friends. We had sailed up the Rhine on A River Cruise. If you ever get the chance to go to The Netherlands...go in very late April or early May.....and don't miss The Keukenhof Gardens
They are beyond your wildest dreams
Tulips in every color
Yes, even black

The Netherlands also has

Delft Pottery


 serene canals with  quaint gabled row houses...and more museums than you've have ever seen!

but these are their real National Jewels 
SC and Marianne  (husband and wife)
 both bloggers
who were nice enough to welcome us to their country, and design (and lead us) on a wonderful walking tour of Amsterdam 

Thank you Marianne and SC


tomorrow it's back to the ranch!


  1. Great photos and obviously you had wonderful guides. The tulips must have been breathtaking!

  2. wow! what a great trip - with a personal tour!

  3. Don't overact please. But it was a delight to show you and your friends a very little part of amsterdam.
    Best wishes

  4. Loved your post. I was in Holland in may but it was a few years back. I follow both SC and Marianne and love both their blogs. Your photos were beautiful!

  5. Oh Janey, that's so nice of you, we enjoyed you visit very much too. Love the photo's you made, the black tulips I haven't seen here yet. Yesterday we drove along the IJ-lake in Amsterdam and we saw your boat again along the quay behind the Central Station. We always call it Janey's boat!

  6. Marvellous shots Janey and how fab to spend time with Marianne and SC. I bet you had great fun. The black tulips are unbelievably beautiful!
