Did you say Haarlem or Harlem?!?!

In honor of the tulips being in bloom in the Netherlands right about now, here is a picture I took while traveling there in 2005. I was pretty sure that I was past the time, but I headed down to Haarlem (ever wonder where that NY neighborhood got its name?!?! :-) ) to see the bulb fields. And I saw a lot of fields, but no blooms. Darn it. I think that I missed it by about 3-4 weeks. Ah well, a reason to come back someday. Which I will, I really like it here. I did find 3 or 4 very small plots in bloom and of course took pictures :) Iris and Alliums.
