Celebrate Spring with Keukenhof Gardens

Keukenhof Gardens, also known as "the Garden of Europe" is starting it's annual tulip festival today.

And here's what we're missing...




Isn't it absolutely beautiful?  It's on my bucket list. I just had to share it with you, just in case you've never heard of this place!



Every year 7 million bulbs are planted. And we get to enjoy the result with none of the work!



The gardens are on 32 hectares!


The tulip festival runs every year from mid-March until mid-May. I would guess the first two weeks in April are probably the best time to go. 




It's so beautiful it almost looks fake.



I just want to go running through the field.

Does it feel like Spring now?



... sure feels like Spring to me.



Is Keukenhof Gardens now on your bucket list too?




Keukenhof Gardens is located in Holland.  It's just a "short" flight over to Amsterdam.  It's outside of Amsterdam, not too far away.

  2. Amazing! I spent the day at the Dallas Arboretum walking the grounds and enjoying the blooms of over 500,000 bulbs. Both are gorgeous venues for enjoying spring tulips. Thanks for taking us along.
