Photos: Keukenhof Gardens, Lisse, Holland

KEUKENHOF translates as kitchen garden in Dutch and is also known as The Garden of Europe. Their website informs that the 79 acre park is planted annually with approximately 7-million flowers. It is located in the small town of Lisse, south of Haarlem and southwest of Amsterdam.

The park opens annually from mid-March to mid-May and the best time to view the tulips is around mid-April, depending, of course, on the weather. Thought it would brighten things up to have photos of spring flower, far more colourful than photos of the bulbs or corms.
