The Last of the Tulips
"You smile upon your friend to-day,
To-day his ills are over;
You hearken to the lover's say,
And happy is the lover.
'Tis late to hearken, late to smile,
But better late than never;
I shall have lived a little while
Before I die for ever."
~ A E Housman, 1859-1936 ~
Finally managed to find time to post photos from our last trip of the season to Keukenhof. The tulips were all fully out and gardeners were dead-heading fast (apparently you should dead-head to preserve the strength in the bulb).
