Okay, I have been lurking on daffnet for a few months and enjoy the posts. I do not have much to contribute as I am not a hybridizer and have yet to enter any shows.  But as it has been requested that more people post, I will send a link to a slideshow of pictures I took when I went to the Keukenhof last year. I was not able to arranged my business trip to coincide with peak daffodil bloom, but I managed to get there the last few days the Keukenhof was open last year. I apologize that some of the photos are blurry, I was having some issues with my camera. But even with the idiot behind the lens and a cheapo point-n-click camera, it is impossible to take an ugly picture at the Keukenhof.

    Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures!  I really felt like I was there.  The fragrance almost made it through my computer’s DSL line as well.

    We are getting above 0 F. today—7-8 degrees above.  The good news is that the snow sculptures and ice sculptures from the St. Paul Winter Carnival are lasting well so many more folks can bundle up and get out to see them.

    Thank you for the wonderful show! I visited Keukenhof many years ago, and these really brought back memories of that magnificent place. It is a cold day in Virginia with snow forecast, so it was especially wonderful to see these pictures.

    Wow. I had no idea that Keukenhof was so large. That was a pretty show of snapshots.
    I would much prefer to be called a “reader”. “Lurker” has a lot of negative aspects.
