The Dutch Connection

It’s that time of year again! The forced spring bulbs are in blossom at the George Eastman House, and it was as gorgeous as ever this year. It was really tough getting a full shot like I have been able to in the past, because there were so many people there today.

The pink flowers grouped together near the organ really caught our eyes:

It’s just so great to see spring flowers – early!

Especially when it looks like this outside, even though it was in the 40’s today!

Just loving those pinks!

They usually have quite a few orchids, but they didn’t have as many this year.

Yeah, taking a photo into a bright window doesn’t really work, but I had to capture more of the color:

They had a musicale at 3:00, which was beautiful,

and while listening, I checked out the different moldings from where I was sitting:

All in all, it was such a gorgeous display of color, I felt like I couldn’t get my eyes full:

    Eye candy!!!! Oh, how very beautiful! The other day at Lowes, I found myself closing my eyes and burying my face in a hyacinth! I am so ready for spring!
