A kaleidoscope of color – Holland’s Tulip Fields

As soon as I got back to Holland on Sunday I decided to go on a little adventure to Keukenhof before returning to Groningen. Keukenhof is the home to Holland’s tulip fields, and is a truly breath taking site. I have never seen such a kaleidoscope of color, it was incredible. I walked around for hours, enjoying the afternoon sun and taking way too many pics! As they say, a picture tells a 1,000 words, so I’ll stop writing now and let the photos do the talking! Enjoy. :)

      It’s amazing! So much color, such a bright, happy place to spend an afternoon. The one thing the photos can’t portray is the smells…can you imagine how sweet the scent is of 100,000’s of flowers?!

    Incredible – truly this is “eye candy” – Keukenhof is one of my favorite places in the world. I am getting old for travel to Europe, but still hoping to make it back to Keukenhof again. Great photography.

    I am from Niagara Falls, ON Canada. Historically, Niagara Falls has had a special relationship with Holland and each year receives tulip bulbs from Holland to plant along our beautiful parkway. I have always appreciated the the glory of the colours that our “friends” from Holland shared with us. But, never have I seen them as you have shared them with us. Such vivid colours. Stunning! Thank you.

    I remember seeing a photo of my mom in this Keukenhof when I was eight and made a mental note of that….Still haven’t made it here during the right time yet. One of these days soon. Happy spring!

    Wow, gorgeous flowers! Fantastic colors! How I wish we also grow tulips here in my side of the world.
