tulipa

Mr Renn had a day full of patients that cancelled in advance yesterday, so we elected to make the most of it and get out of the house.  (Every day Mr Renn's had off in the last month has been spent painting and packing, ugh)
So we packed up and headed out to Longwood, because that's what we do in this family.... and we hadn't seen their new fragrance-themed revamp yet.

We were lucky and caught the very tail-end of the tulips (millions of tulips!)  About 1/5 of the tulips were already dead-headed or dug up, but we were still able to grasp the scope of the massive tulip collection they had going on.

We went on a perfumer's quest inside the conservatory, and the Captain had the most fun he's ever had inside the children's garden.

And Sir O + the whispering bench (a miniature of this one) was a riot:



It's almost enough to make me hope more of Mr Renn's patients cancel, except not really, as we need them to show up so he can finish and we can move!

those pictures make me want to go to Holland and really experience tulips. I'm glad you could get out for a bit and away from the mundane packing. By the way, have I told you I'm loving your long hair? It's pretty!`
