Keukenhof Garden is known as the Garden of Europe and is the largest flower garden in the world. After our crazy day in Amsterdam this was the perfect place to "stop and smell the flowers!"
It is located in Lisse, The Netherlands, which is about 20 minutes southwest of Amsterdam.
Keukenhof is only open each year from mid-March to mid-May and the best time to see the tulips in full bloom is usually the middle of April.
So as you can see not all of the tulips were in bloom yet. It was a beautiful sight with endless rows of tulips and other flowers.
They have a traditional Dutch windmill in the park. We got to climb up to the platform and look out over the fields.
There is also an enormous green house with every kind of tulip you could dream of.
Maddie loved trying to grab the flowers and the other tourists loved Maddie's big smile and wanted to take pictures of her.
Throughout the park there are 7 million bulbs planted annually so it is truly a blaze of colors!
This is a design of Dutch rowhouses made of different types of flowers.
Can you tell what's happening in the picture above? Sometimes when the baby is hungry and there is a lot to see and not a lot of time, she has to eat on the run- ha ha!! Although I wouldn't recommend it too often; your arms get tired!
After a beautiful morning, we left just as the rain arrived! Until next time Keukenhof!
