Bloemencorso 2012, the fantastic flower-parade in Haarlem...

For the 65th time the most colourful flower-power event, the Bloemencorso, took place in the Bollenstreek, the flower-bulb-area between Leiden and Amsterdam...This one-weekend-lasting display of fresh flowers respresenting different subjects is always an impressive and charming show to visit and photograph. Despite the chilly and windy weather, the sky was fantastically blue and all participants were parked in the centre of the cute and cozy Dutch town Haarlem the whole last Sunday!
The topic this year was communication! the winner was a platform representing colourful parrots:-) My personal favourite was a guy reading newspaper, looking very lazy with one foot in the air...I also loved the mix of creative flower-presentations with beautiful Dutch architecture...and of course this awesome blue sky and warm sunshine!

Hoi Jana
Ik zit hier nog na te genieten van de Dakota vlucht :)
Maar de Corso mag er natuurlijk ook wezen. Nu heb ik dat al heel veel gezien in mijn leven..want ik woon daar dichtbij.. Het blijft iets moois..Dat door veel vrijwilligers ieder jaar maar weer gemaakt word.
Prachtige serie Jana
Groetjes Henk Bos
