Weâ€™ve had some fabulous weather over the past few days.
There was a gorgeous pink moon on Thursday.
I also enjoyed watching the plane constellations shift.
Someone wasnâ€™t sure what all the moongazers were doing in its territory.
Trees are blossoming.
Birds are claiming their territory on a neighboring tree.
Squirrels munch on tree buds.
Flowers are emerging everywhere.
Tomorrow is a big day in my home country. Queen Beatrix is abdicating and Willem-Alexander will be the first king in 123 years.
I remember the abdication of Queen Juliana, and found a small essay I wrote in elementary school.
This was me as a queen in 1980. 🙂 It does seem strange to have a king whom I watched grow up in the papers.
Even though there is a debate about whether the monarchy is an antiquated institution (the Dutch Royal Family is mostly ceremonial and ambassadorial), tomorrowâ€™s celebrations will be fun to observe.
Hereâ€™s to the land of tulips!
