It’s the dead of winter, yet there is no snow on the ground and temperatures are unseasonably mild. Still, it’s looking pretty grey outside, so my mind wanders to spring and the promise of vibrant colour and fragrance such as that epitomized by the world’s largest flower garden, the Keukenhof near Lisse, Holland.
In May 2010 we had the opportunity to visit this stunning 32 hectare park, also known as the Garden of Europe, which features every imaginable variety and colour of spring flower, including tulip (my personal favourite), crocus and hyacinth. Millions of bulbs are planted annually. It offers a feast for the eyes.
The Keukenhof is open to the public for eight weeks only each spring.
