Albany is a city with a rich Dutch heritage. Around 1609, it was the Dutch who established the Fort Orange at the site of the present-day Albany. To celebrate the heritage, every year during the Mother’s Day weekend a Tulip Festival is celebrated at the Washington Park in Albany.
This year, however, the tulips are a few weeks early. Yesterday morning I rode my bike to the park and found that the tulips are in full bloom! Enjoy the some of the pictures that I took this year!!
Thank you, tulips… for taking me to a very nice retreat to Holland!
