We had Tim, Vicky, Alex and Hattie over for the long Easter weekend. To celebrate spring's arrival, we took them to Keukenhof, the world's largest flower garden. Some wikifacts about Keukenhof:
- 7 million bulbs are planted each year there.
- It was designed in the 19th century by Zocher.
- It was meant to show off Dutch and European tulips and their hybrids. Also to help the Dutch flower export industry.
The photos don't lie, the colours were incredible and the first impression was breathtaking, it felt like we were in Wonderland and the Queen could pop out from behind any bush! I found it a strange, beautiful, overcrowded and an overpriced place. It's worth a visit though, I've seen nothing like it.
