Lisse & Keukenhof

Feeling very fresh and floral thanks to the Royal Flora Market we were keen to stop at Lisse and visit Keukenhof – Hollands other amazing flora spectacular, in-fact one of the worlds largest flower gardens (also sometimes called the Garden of Europe)According to the official website for the Keukenhof Park, approximately 7 million flower bulbs are planted annually in the park, which covers an area of 32 hectares (79 acres).  Again MASSIVE and the most beautiful garden I have ever seen, area after area planted out with spectacular bulbs into amazing displays as well as large gardens including trees shrubs ponds and much much more.  One could easily spend two days here and still not have seen it all.  A fantastic place to explore or a truely beautiful place to bring a rug and picnic and sit and relax, smell, listen (to the birds) and enjoy the greenery and of course be dazzled by the colour also.  The gardens are only open from March to May each year with them being worked on for the remainder of the year to create the annual visual spectacular that it delivers.
