The sender of this postcard also spoke of spring, "Here in Amsterdam, where spring has begun so more and more flowering tulips. Enjoy!"

I've never been in a real field of tulips and I wish I will one day. 

Happy weekend everyone! 



  1. Being in a field of tulips is also on my list! I hope one year I can go to Holland during the spring!

  2. Such a cute lamb! He/she looks different from the Dutch lambs: so to see New Zealand sheep have more wool, even when young, than the ones in NL.
    Thank you for sharing!

    Due to a crashed computer, and an inability to move pictures from my smartphone to blogspot, I have an involuntary blog-post-break at the moment. Nevertheless I'm enjoying your Postcards for the Weekend a lot!

    1. Hi Heleen, my friend in Rotterdam has a farm and I told her the next time I visit NL, I will plan to come on spring so I can see the Dutch lambs right after birth :) Thanks for continuously visiting the party. I wish your computer will be sorted out soon!

  3. Lovely images of spring! Here - still snow on the ground... Brr.

  4. Love seeing the first lambs, well any lamb actually so this one is nice too.
