Since we didn't make it to the tulip fields in Holland this year, we made do with the Ted Ensley gardens at Lake Shawnee in Topeka. Only a 30 minute drive away and admission is $5 using the honor system. Pretty good deal.
Did I mention the lilacs were blooming and smelled heavenly? AND they had benches for resting?
The Amsterdam Tulip Museum remains on my list of places to see, in the meantime, I get my tulip fix any way I can.
