Last weekend my humans took me to Keukenhof. This is a very special place in Holland where flowers of every kind are grown. Some say it is the most booti-ful place in the world.

While we were there, Dad took lots of photos of me and Missus. There’s not much action but I think they are very pretty...

Here I am, ready to go and explore all of the flowers. (Actually, I was more interested in exploring the food that this family were eating.)

And we’re off!

We were having a great walk, then Missus decided that we should stop for a few poses.

Me and Missus. You can tell that she really loves me.

Here we are in the shade.

Here we’re ‘pretty in pink’.

Man, there were photo opportunities everywhere.

I soon realised that Missus was in every photo and stealing my limelight. Very subtly, I managed to get her out of the picture...

Ta-da! Just me and the flowers.

The flowers sure were booti-ful...but not as booti-ful as me.

Anyway, that’s enough of me posing. I don’t normally feature anything but me in my blog. However, the flowers at Keukenhof were so booti-ful that I’ll make an exception in this case.

Enjoy the pictures below!

Homer, you are quite handsome in all those pictures. But we do have to say that the Missus is quite pretty herself! Mom says she has no luck with tulips and was just astounded by the beauty there.

Ohh... the flowers are all so pretty! I feel like crashing/ barging/ trampling/ mowing through them.

Hi Homer!
I like walk the park too. But I have never seen so beautiful a lot of flowers.


Chef said...

Homer, my Mama's going wild over those tulip pictures - she's a florist and she loooooves working with tulips. Unfortunately, they're only available at average prices for a few weeks a year here in Canada. She'd just have loved to go to Keukenhof with you. Thanks to you and Missus for sharing those booootiful pictures.
