Well here we are again making the rounds of the alphabet.

This time I am on the QUEST for the letter  " Q  ".

I am QUITE happy to have a new park so close to our home.

QUARRY Park....

The new park is on the grounds of the old, no longer in use, QUARRY.

The QUARRY mined granite for many buildings in San Francisco.

I am so glad they have developed such a beautiful park.

This place in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco,CA is called

QUEEN Wilhelmina's Tulip Garden.

The Dutch Windmill has been cosmetically restored but is no longer working.

When we were there recently the tulips were finished for the season and the

Icelandic poppies were just about done too.

It was a beautiful day for sightseeing anyway.

Thanks for looking and thanks to the ABC team and their QUALITY work.

That is a beautiful photo of the windmill. It looks so solid that it will stay like that forever!

I love going to Queen Wilhelmina's garden. When I first came to the US, my brother took me there first (as well as GG bridge) so I will always remember the joy I felt when I saw the tulips that day.
