Tiptoe Through the Tulips

As you take a bright spring walk through the world famous Keukenhof Gardens of Lisse, Netherlands, you will see tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils wash over the landscape in a riot of colors - lining walkways, framing ponds and waterways, and blanketing the woodland floor.  While you meander through the Japanese Garden, you can marvel over the orchids in the Beatrix Pavilion. 

Come Tiptoe Through the Tulips with the Cottage Grove Garden Club as Club member Diane Murray shares a slide show presentation of a recent visit to these beautiful locations. We will meet on Tuesday, May 5, the business meeting begins at 6pm and Diane's presentation begins at 7:00. Refreshments provided, all visitors and guests welcome.

The Cottage Grove Garden Club meets in the Friendship Hall at the First Presbyterian Church, 216 South 3rd Street (the corner of 3rd and Adams), Cottage Grove, Oregon.

Here's a sampler from the Keukenhof website:
