My friend Gene in Northern California sent me some wonderful shots of the Keukenhof in Holland.  I used to commute to Holland for about four years and loved the country, although not the climate!  Nearly everybody in Holland speaks English but I did learn to speak one important phrase in Dutch: "No nutmuskart!"  They had a habit of sprinkling nutmeg on vegetables, which I disliked intensely.  This 3 minute clip shows the wonderful flowers that are on display at the Keukenhof, which means kitchen garden, at this time of the year.  The music is Tchaikovsky's Dance of the Flowers, of course. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSXsiWqBLvo&feature=related
