Spring has definitely sprouted here.... And with it, come the sneezes and hayfever! However, there is one small business/farm up in the local hills that will occasionally draw me out and about in Springtime. This place....sells the Prince of Orange of all flowers..... Tesselaar's is a family owned business and have been doing mail-order bulbs for the last 55 years. The family is originally from Holland....and every spring, for about 4 weeks, the farm is opened for a display of tulips. The family put the word out that the tulips had bloomed early this year and so, I made the effort to head for the hills on opening day to take a stroll around their 'garden'. And my more artsy shots of the day...... I'm hoping to head up to the hills again in a couple of days time. It will be close on 2 weeks since this visit. Hope the tulips are still blooming!
