Today I am sharing more of our recent trip to Europe. If you missed the previous post on the flower fields of Holland, you can view it by clicking here. If you missed the video that my daughter made you can see it by clicking here. The photos in this post are all from our visit to Keukenhof Gardens. Keukenhof is a 79 acre garden planted with hundreds of thousands of bulbs and it is unbelievably gorgeous. It is open from late March until late May and our visit was the first week of April. The gardens have shuttle buses that operate from nearby train stations and from the airport at Amsterdam. We took the bus from the Amsterdam airport and I believe that it took about 15 minutes. There were many tour buses there but the property is so large that it didn’t seem crowded at all. I’ll let the photos do most of the talking.
It was chilly and slightly overcast but the flowers were still beautiful.
My young travel mates for the day wanted to have their picture taken in the giant wooden shoe.
I was surprised at the size of the windmill. It was really big.
The photo above and the one below were taken on the deck of the windmill.
I had my daughter stand there to show the size of the Rhododendron. It was at least 10 feet tall and wide.
As I have said many times before, nothing makes a bigger impact than a mass planting of a single color. I hope that you enjoyed the tour. Have a great week!
