Picture of the Week / The Netherlands

Spring is in the air – 7/17

Crocus at Hortus Botanicus Leiden

Spring is in the air –  even though it is still February, we had a few mild days already and the first flowers are out. We went on a walk yesterday passing quite a few gardens showing the first colours of the year. Snowdrops, daffodils, crocuses, some shrubs with flowers and many more… Spring is definitely on its way.


However, this picture is slightly older and was taken during my time as student in Leiden in the Netherlands. Back then students of Leiden University had free entrance to the botanic garden. You can imagine that that was close to paradise for me, loving to take a lot of macro shots 🙂 The picture of the crocuses was taken in one of the outdoor areas. If you ever get the chance, go and visit this place.

...you will find a pot of gold. The truth is that none has ever found the end of the rainbow or the promised pot of gold. I haven't found them either but I have found many wonderful places during my travels in Europe. Come follow me and see the world with my eyes. Whenever I think I have found the most wonderful place, I know that I will continue to search, discover and travel. I know that I will find new places and that I will again think that they are the most wonderful places that I've ever seen. This a personal project where I want to share my travel experience, passion for photography and creativity with you.
