Tulip Time

Maybe in one of the following years I’ll be able to go again to the Tulip Festival with some dear people. It was so good, when we went to Bowral some 40 years ago!

Bowral Tulip Festival 1982 and 1983

We have some pictures to prove that we were at Bowral in 1982 and also in 1983. In 1982 we were in Bowral with our friends and their daughter Ellen who was a good companion for our daughter Caroline who was four at the time. I remember that in 1982 we were not only at Corbett Gardens in Bowral, but we had also tickets to visit a number of private display garden. We enjoyed very much looking at all the gardens.

For the following pictures it says in our album “Bowral Oct.83” During that visit Caroline was not quite five yet. The Tulip Festival was on again in the Corbett Gardens, the same as every year. Since Caroline is to be seen in the picture with some Dutch girls from the Festival, I think that the Tulip Festival must still have been on, even though it was already October.

  1. The EmuEditWhat an absolutely gorgeous display Uta, that must have been a very enjoyable outing.
    Best wishes for a beautiful weekend, and happy traveling.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThese pictures help us to remember these two Tulip Festivals so many years ago. We have seen the Corbett Gardens at other times too,so not always for the tulip festival. These gardens do look beautiful at any time of the year with lots of trees and different plants and flowers.
      Thanks for commenting, dear Emu. Reply

    1. auntyuta EditYes, Sue, the highlands, especially Bowral, Moss Vale and Robertson, always bring back lots of memories. We are glad, this year we went up there earlier in the week for it looks like we are in now for a very rainy weekend. Hugs back, dear Sue oxxo

  1. You know, Carolyn. when I see something of the Netherlands, I think of Gerard, and how much Peter liked him and Helvi. If Peter was still alive, I am sure, we could still visit each other. In some respects, Gerard and I are still friends. But this kind of friendship does have its problems. I am resigned to the fact now, that at present I cannot see Gerard in person. However, since there is no Peter anymore. I’m determined, that if a single, elderly man indicates that he is interested in me, I might over time perhaps get interested in him too. Should I ever be lucky enough to be in a loving relationship again, I would not hesitate to introduce this lover of mine to Gerard, and Gerard might become friends with him, the way he was friends with Peter. Does this sound complicated? Ah well, whatever will be, will be, right? 🙂
    Your HUGS are so very welcome, dear Carolyn!
    HUGS from me too! Love, Uta ❤
