This post is the second of my Keukenhof Gardens series. If you haven’t seen it, I invite you to have a look at “Keukenhof in White“.
Visiting Keukenhof Gardens is a breathtaking experience. Flowers are gorgeous and the floral arrangements are amazing. The best way to enjoy them is to walk through the garden, trying to avoid as many tourists as possible (it’s not always easy) :-) You can easily spend hours without even noticing it !… oh well, at least, I can ! ;-)
Pink flowers are often associated with love and pink tulips are quite popular over there, I’ve seen so many different species (but I didn’t think about taking notes about the species names… hmm… sorry about that). The mix between light pink and bright pink creates a wonderful feast for the eyes, especially when you look at the tulips below. How gorgeous, one of my favorite flowers !
Beside walking in the park, the visitors can also enjoy the floral displays inside the several glasshouses disseminate throughout the garden. Not all the flowers in Keukenhof are outside :-) The Beatrix glasshouse is home to thousands of orchids that will take your breath away. There was also some Anthurium and Bromelia displayed inside. When I went to Singapore during winter 2013, I had the chance to visit the National Orchid Garden, with more than 60 000 orchids on display. I would say that the Beatrix glasshouse is the second best show about orchids I’ve ever seen :-) Probably the best in Europe, but if you think I’m wrong, feel free to share your addresses with me in the comments below ;-) I would love to discover new places.
I wish you a good weekend ! It’s mother’s day in Belgium, but I think the date is different from one place to another ;-)
