Tulip Time Festival

 A drive up to Holland, Michigan for Tulip Time and a visit to Veldheer tulip farm / De Klomp Wooden Shoe and Delft Factory with my Dutch friend Lora. I can pretty much pass as Dutch now. I know all the words: klomp, Delft, and oiliebollen.  I visited the festival when young…all I recall is the sing-song tune "tulips are blooming in Holland, Michigan…tulips bright colored and gay…dance on the scrubbed streets of Holland, Michigan…when tulips bloom in May!"We were a little early for full-bloomed tulips. But, were able to capture a few timid petals peeping vibrantly from their buds.
