I’ve never been to a tulip museum but one thing I miss now I’ve moved to France is my annual trip to the bulb-fields.

I went with some pals on a 3 day bus trip to the Dutch bulb fields some years ago which included a visit to the Keukenof Gardens. I was mind blown at the beautiful coloured fields of tulips and as for Keukenof absolutely fantastic and I came home with a very large order for bulbs for delivery later that year and I didn't stop at ordering tulips but daffodils, hyacinths etc etc etc. I will visit again when the opportunity arises and would recommend to anyone to go visit Keukenof. Go see Holland as well.

I lived a couple of hours away from the Dutch bulb fields so it was an annual day trip. A few hours in Keukenhof followed by a drive through the bulb fields and an evening meal in a seaside restaurant before heading home.

Still searching hoping to find round tuits that I may have squirreled away over the years, found some cast iron garde fou de fenêtres that I had renovated, cut n shut and adapted for my openings many years back.

Under 10°c today so a bit cold for the resin anchors, instead removed the last of the oak menuiserie to give a scabby chick re-looking, 8 wardrobe doors and drawer fronts, I really liked the light oak look when I made them but they have darkened and tastes have changed including mine.

I had an uncle and Aunt who lived in the Spalding area - if anyone knows it - it is flat. Tulips were grown there and every year the town had a tulip festival parade. Amazing floats all decorated with tulip heads, bands playing, wonderful groomed cart horses etc - it took about 2 hours to go past - it was amazing and we used to go every year. I see lovely floats etc in carnivals now on TV but they are all fake - these heads were placed on the pre-stuffed floats within 24 hours - thats dedication. I have always loved tulips since
