Pollen Pleasure

After all that blue, a bit of colour.  I am so lucky to be able to buy tulips every day of the winter at Vanco, just down the road.

I like the detail in this. I've had a look at the Vanco website; some fine colours there.
Mary MacADNski: It is wonderful! Nice to pick up on the way to town for someone or on the way home for yourself.
I love tulips and you are lucky to have that place on your doorstep
Mary MacADNski: We sure are lucky to have this piece of Holland. I have show their fields in the past.

I like the song and it reminds me of another song from My Fair Lady sung by The Poozies, and Irish folk group. It is called 'All I want' but is, unfortunately blocked in this country so I cannot post it. It is from their album - Changed Days.
Mary MacADNski: It was unavailable to me too. I know a lot of those folk songs they sing. Kate Rusby was part of this group and she does a version of Our Town that is out of this world and a very favorite version of a song. I have featured it here before: https://youtu.be/sI6DBIvyEMI
Lovely gold, and a great choice of song.
Fine close-ups, the fields at Vanco must look just like Holland at the moment. The song is one I wouldn't personally choose to play but this version is excellent, the swing band in the background is right up my street.
