Bloemenmarkt | Amsterdam

One of things I was most excited to see in Amsterdam was the Bloemenmarkt.  It is the world's only floating flower market, located in the Singel canal.  And I just loved all the tulips! They were even selling bulbs of the world-famous Dutch tulips, prepackaged in sealed containers, so they could easily be taken through customs when returning home. It was a fun afternoon of walking through each shop, and, dare I say, taking the time to stop and smell the roses.  


We came home with an array of wooden tulips:

There is a little cheese shop across from the market. We lost Taras in there for a while!
