Spring has sprung, the weather is finally starting to warm up and I can wear less layers and be comfortable walking down the street. We decided to take some time out of our hectic schedules to revel in the wether and the season and head out on our annual visit to Keukenhof!
It was just as magical and stunning as it always is.
After managing to be there a little late the first year, and then a littler early due to paranoia on the second visit, this year we think we nailed it just right!
We saw a little bit of everything! There were crocuses, and hyacinths, but there were also plenty of tulips to see and admire!
Flower beds! Get it!!! Well, I find it amusing! The colours are all so vibrant and inundating, it’s almost as if it can’t be real!
Of course there are other things to tantalise as well, and a trip to Keukenhof wouldn’t be complete without a picture of the windmill. On a lawn nearby here they were running a yoga class for anyone who wished to participate!
We stopped in to see the petting zoo and talk with the animals. We didn’t go in this year as we thought we should probably leave most of the petting to the kids, but this goat was over by the fence making a valiant attempt at eating his way through the enclosure!
I don’t think I’ll ever tire of going to see the profusion of bulb flowers each year.
The one thing we may have been slightly too early for was to see the portrait of Van Gogh in all it’s blooming glory. But you can’t have everything, and we saw the flowers just beginning to push their way through.
It was a wonderful day out and about reveling in all the wonders Spring has to offer after a long and cold Winter.
What have you been doing recently to celebrate the season?
One thought on “Keukenhof 2015”
The photos look lovely and it seems your timing was just right (though it’s a shame to miss the Van Gogh flower portrait). I wonder if the goat made any further progress on actuating his escape plan? 🙂
I’m glad you explained the flower beds, as I’m evidently not quite with it this morning and was turning my head this way and that, trying to understand what the frames were for 😀
I’m celebrating the season by shedding a few layers and trying to sit in the sun on every possible occasion (not much luck the past week and a bit because we’ve had rain rain and more rain, but hopefully the sun will be back soon!).
