I went to a plant nursery yesterday for some flowers and herbs to put on my back balcony. While looking for tomato, mint, and coriander, I found Cypripedium reginae (Showy Lady Slipper Orchid). They are quite beautiful and remind me of the wild orchid in Laos with a shape of a slipper.
My Mama’s favorite flower is no other than Dutch Tulip. Her favorite color is red. When I see red tulip, I like to take a picture of the flower. When I have enough photos, I then make a photo CD and send it to her.
Spring is in full swing here in the Netherlands (Holland). It was a beautiful sunny Monday as I took a stroll through garden full of tulips and other spring blossoms at Keukenhof. I wanted to visit this Spring Garden of Europe in April around Boun Pi Mai Lao (Songkran) for best photo opportunity.

It was a beautiful spring day in Holland with weather prediction for 19 degrees Celsius and 80% chance of sunshine. I went for a walk around 13:30 hour at the local park and found plenty of signs for spring 2012. I was at the park 10 days ago but didn’t take notice of my two …
Signs of Spring 2012 are becoming more apparent around the neighborhood and the rest of the country. During my lunch walk on Friday I found plenty of Spring Crocus along my walking path. I couldn’t help but to stop and smell the flowers along the way.
