Tons of tulips, marvellous Mums, and a boat cruise down the canal, too!

Tulip Fest is in full swing here, and my fabulous Mum was visiting this past weekend for TF and Mother's Day. We managed to cram a lot into a few days:

  • A great Baroque concert at St Brigid's, featuring Il Convito Musicale! Photos at right are the magnificent interior of St Brigid's, a deconsecrated former Irish Catholic Church.

  • Dinner at the delish Fraser CafĂ©... Mmmmm fresh, local ingredients and melt-in-your-mouth gnocci.

  • A cruise on the canal, courtesy of the always-somewhat-bawdy Paul's Boat Lines. Some shots below:
