The Netherlands – Heavenly Keukenhof

Before visiting Keukenhof in early May this year, I had thought to myself – “Flowers – they’ll be pretty, but well, they’re just flowers…”. While I walked around in Keukenhof however, the sights were mesmerizingly beautiful everywhere I turned. I could not help but keep thinking that this was what I could imagine heaven to look like. We were blessed with pleasant weather that day too – temperature in the low twenties and lots of sunshine. There was the pleasant light scent of flowers to top it off.

There were seven million bulbs of tulips there this year in Keukenhof, we were told. Many were on beautifully landscaped gardens; there were also fields of tulips that we could get a view of from above, standing on a windmill – seas of red, yellow, orange, white… rows of flowers one after another into the distance. Do enjoy just a few photos below.
