And, as if you haven’t had enough of flowers, I will end this Going Dutch series on a bright and cheery note! I took these photos at the Flower Market, known as the Bloemenmarkt in Amsterdam. The photos pretty much speak for themselves. You can walk away with a bouquet, seeds, apparently cannabis products (I didn’t spend time getting the details), or dried flowers. This post is a lovely way to start or end your day or, maybe even, be a pick-me-up in the middle of the day.
There are also some stalls with tourist trinkets: https://www.holland.com/global/tourism/destinations/amsterdam/floating-flower-market.htm
I hope your day ends up showing promise just as these stunning flowers portray during this pandemic crisis we find ourselves enduring as our daily living. I don’t just hope but rather have faith we WILL get to see the light of day….In the meantime, Stay Safe and Stay Healthy.
