Weekends (Or: Flower filled Fridays)

I would take a picture of the flowers outside of my NY apartment, but they have been scorched due to the heat and no longer resemble anything with vibrant color. (However, I feel like doing a cheer… it’s been over a month, but tonight the apartment is finally cooler than 80F/26C.)

So instead, here are some colorful pictures from Madurodam. It’s been a while since I showed any Madurodam photos!

The landscaping of Madurodam is its own reason to visit, in my mind.

Above, a typical kid doing the balance beam routine. It reminds me of the thing children liked to do when I was a kid: don’t step on a sidewalk crack, or you’ll break your grandmother’s back. I like to think I did this perfectly – as no harm ever came to her back.

    Random bit of non-flower related Madurodam info:
    It’s been revamped. Lots more ‘interactive’ stuff now for kids. Make a plane take off from mini-Schiphol and that sort of thing.
    No news if the exhibitionist female miniatures are still there.
    Or the figure of the kid and the dyke, just outside of it…
