Bloemenmarkt (Floating Flower Market)

The Floating Flower Market really does float. It's been open since 1862, but now all the little shops are on concrete houseboat bases. It's beautiful - one of those places you've got to bring your camera.

Every sort of flower imaginable is available.

I would have loved to bring a few peonies home. Unfortunately, only flowers with a  health certificate for the US and Canada are allowed back into the country. So, I just had to drool.

I drooled over the unending tulip bulbs, too. Unfortunately, the crop that will have the necessary certificate is still a week or two away.

K fell in love with these small wooden tulips. Since we couldn't get the real thing, she decided a few of these would look good in her bedroom. At €1.00 each we couldn't resist.
