Due to the Covid-19 (Corona) pandemic, the people in my country had to deal with restrictive measures, like everywhere in the world. Because of my Lyme-disease history and my age, I was strongly advised not to go outdoors e.g. for a photo shoot. Our government took a few days ago the decision that some of the restrictive measures will be weakened per June, 1st. But after that we realized that it was a preliminary decision because they have to be approved by the outbreak team (a panel consisting of virologists and epidemiologists). This will be done one week before the 1st of June. Till June, 1st I'll provide you with some photographs from the 'bin'.

This one is taken in the spring of a couple of years ago in the Keukenhof, one of the world's largest flower garden, situated near the town of Lisse in The Netherlands.

Because of the pandemic, it's closed now and it won't be open this year.

PS: THIS LINK was provided by our friend Pat, aka Skates.

By checking out-the by Pat provided link, one can see some images of the professional Dutch photographer Albert Drost, who was given the privilege to capture the deserted Keukenhof.

“Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air”

As with Joni Mitchell's song, you have provided us with rows and floes of angel flowers.

I had watched the video of the Flower Garden before SEA and thought of you and all your wonderful shots. It must have been quite the honor to be able to photograph it without people present.
His shots are not any better then yours, which leads me to believe the Dutch have a natural talent for beauty.
Excellent photo.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
