Monday Tuesday.

 

Today I am again showing photo’s from my files. These I took a few years ago in March. The weather was much nicer then and there were some flowers already blooming outside. This year it is still terribly cold so most of the flowers in the Keukenhof, “ the garden of Europe” are in the beautiful pavillions. Imagine a flower garden with over 7 million bulb flowers. It is indeed the largest garden in the world, only open in spring from March till May ,

Go here http://www.keukenhof.nl/en/5/facts-and-figures.html to read more about the Keukenhof.

Hello Riet
Happy Easter!
Friends of mine made a special trip by bus from Amsterdam to visit "Keukenhof" last year.
They said it was outstanding, they were overwhelmed by the size of it.
Your blues are beautiful, love the display of Spring flowers, your beautiful windmill and such pretty clogs!

Beautiful photos!
I have on my table tulips, which are brought from Holland as most of our flowers in flower shops during winters.
Happy week and warmer weather also to you!

Lovely flowers, and beautifully photographed, but what really grabs my attention is the colourful bust. I'd love to know more about it.

I love the flowers - the more of them I see, the more I think of Spring! Col windmill, just hat we in the US imagine of Holland. A beautiful country!

Riet! It has been a while since I have seen you. I love this post. The colors are so well coordinated. Awesome.

I have been away for 4 days on a Easter Break. Did go anywhere, just away from the blogosphere for awhile was very necessary. I'll put a new post on tomorrow.

I love seeing these flowers and this wonderful place, so I'm glad you went into your archives for the post! But I am sorry for your long winter this year -- I know you're getting tired of it.
