Tulip season in Holland

This might not be any news for you, especially if you follow me on Instagram, but I love tulip season. I'm always quietly waiting for it to happen, and when it does, I feel I'm ready and fulfilled to wait another year for them to bloom again.

Every year it is different, even if they might look bit similar on the pictures, the colors and placement of this colors is not. I call it color therapy, and the most effective one. After 1 minute standing in one of those colorful fields, your soul immediately feels better. I tried filming it, and you can watch it here.

I hope this color therapy injects you with a little joy!

These last pictures, and the ones below are tulips we got to pick ourselves. I love them because they are all different, not like the kind they sell at the flower shops everywhere here, and the black background is my latest  obsession.

 A stylized version.

And a not so stylized version. Our messy dining table, but what the heck, if you're looking at the mess, then you are not really seeing those beauties.

This is our third year visiting the tulip fields, and you can see them here, here and here if you like.

Wishing you a wonderful and very colorful day,


  1. Gorgeous! Could you imagine flying above this and seeing the bands of color streaking the landscape!? Your picked variety is a riot!

    1. Thank you so much! I actually saw it once from up above, many, many years ago (before digital cameras) and it was absolutely incredible. The picked variety is a surprise because when you pick them they're closed so only when they open back home, do you get to see the difference, it is fun seeing them open everyday.

  2. The colour must feel incredible. I like your vintage books and props! x

    1. It does feel amazing, the perfect medicine ;) I do love those books, I found them in London.
