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).
