I think the reason why I am so attracted to flowers is that I don’t have a green thumb. I love to have a garden but I cannot grow a single plant. Everything I plant just die, even the succulents. It’s just not my talent. The closest I can get is to enjoy few hours of uninterrupted flower-gazing adventure at Keukenhof. And my bucket list for that place is now fully checked! At last!
You will not believe how vast Keukenhof park is and it is filled with many variety of flowering spring bulbs. Most of the showcased flowers are tulips. Well, it is not a surprise since Holland is known for its beautiful, and sturdy tulips. And I visited Keukenhof with my family to see those gorgeous flowers and other spring plants in bloom. I am not disappointed at all.
Keukenhof has several pavilions where beautiful flowering plants are showcased. I took a long time in the Willem-Alexander Pavilion because that’s where most of the tulips and its variants are displayed.
I also visited the Juliana Pavilion again to show my mum-in-law the cultivation of tulips and other exhibit about the beautiful flower.
It was really a joyous and thrilling experience to visit the Keukenhof once again. We managed to go around the entire park and checked out other pavilions to see the flower showcases.
I highly recommend this place to everyone who plans to visit Netherlands this spring. Keukenhof is only open during spring time each year and the date varies year after year. It is open for 8 weeks until 3rd week of May. This year, it is open from 21 March to 19 May, 2019.
Here are some of the snaps I have taken around the Keukenhof park and some of the pavilions. I am not sure if I did justice with the photos because all the flowers are really beautiful up close. I only used my iPhone XS Max camera. I must say, the phone’s camera did deliver with crisp and vibrant photos. All I did was watermarked, reduced the size so I could post them here.
Enjoy the spring blooms at Keukenhof!
I hope you’ll be able to visit this beautiful garden in Lisse, The Netherlands. If you have visited it already, comment below of your experience about the place and if you could recall which theme it had the time you visited. This year’s theme is Flower Power. So, vibrant, colorful, and mixed of beautiful flowers are all over the park.
