Fellow blogger, John McLawson (you can find him here) has been posting photographs of flowers taken in the Nevada desert. Flowers in John’s desert somehow make it despite the arid conditions. So, with John in mind, I took this photograph of flowers growing here in Holland (as usual, no idea what sort of flowers they are). There is never a shortage of water here in the Netherlands (indeed it is raining today) and of course the Dutch are famous for their flowers. Fortunately, we don’t have rattlesnakes in the Netherlands either and so I do urge John to watch where he walks when wandering in the desert taking photographs.
