It is quite chilly, Ina.  I just checked the weather for today and the expected high is 55 F while the low is 38 F, almost freezing and its the first week of May!  I will report on the Keukenhof after tomorrow as we visit tomorrow.  The only good news about the cool weather is that it is prolonging the tulip bloom.  funny thing is, I am not wild about tulips, but here, they just look so right!
