Koninginnedag! (Queen's Day)

Edit - May 1, 2009:

Koninginnedag 2009 -The day that will not soon be forgotten.
How sad and how senseless was the act of one crazy person, which put a black spot on the day's celebrations forever.

My heartfelt condolences to the friends and family members of the 7 innocent people who were killed April 30th.

just sad ...

Edit to add: The perpetrator of this terrible attack also died - raising the total deaths to 8, though I can't say he was "innocent".



Tot Ziens,
Judy

Beautiful Judy! I love the intense, saturated jewel colours! I reminds me of silk!!! I can just imagine this little jewel of yours framed on the wall!

Bedankt Meisie!
You know, it would look good as a silk painting, now that you mention it.
Though, I don't need another medium to distract me... LOL
