Flower-Power: Bloemencorso 2014, colours, sun and wind!













This year the famous flower parade was a bit later than usual, on the first weekend of May. As often before we went to Noordwijkerhout on Friday eve and enjoyed the sea of flowers, colours+perfumes! Dive in, can you smell them ? :-)

Jana - I WISH I could smell them. Lucky you! There's still 4 feet of snow around my house in Breck. My growing season is going to be VERY short! Smell the blooms for me.

I am thinking about the hours and hours of hard work to put these beautiful flower floats together and how much patience it must take to get it just right. These flower parades are just way too beautiful and strikingly so. I love the last shot of "Holland Boy" for I am looking at the girl smiling behind him. Great photo and thank you for touching my life with beauty and humour today. I was out on a small jaunt round the back roads to a pond where we fish and caught a sun dog reflection. Not a prominent one, but still a fairly good capture. I shall send it to you in my email, for I cannot do so from here - I think your photographers eye would appreciate my attempt. Have a wonderful day Jana. Oh, we still have deep snow in the woods, but mostly gone about town and the flowers n buds are just starting to poke their little heads out at the bit of warmth May brings. Ciou xo

Sorry, I guess I do not have your email address, so cannot send photo. If you leave a comment on my post, I can pick it up from there. Thanks, Lilly

It's hard to believe that these floats are made with flowers, beautiful colors and I bet the aroma was amazing! Lovely parade!

What wonderful creative displays have been made with the flowers. The work involved must take hours of time. How lovely to see them all.
