When we first started planning our trip, we hadn’t really thought too much about when all the flowers would be in bloom in Holland. After we booked our ticket I looked it up, and lo and behold — they were going to be at least started blooming!!! After some more research, I found Keukenof, the “world’s largest flower garden”! We really love visiting gardens, so despite the somewhat pricey entry fee, we decided to go. It was completely worth the cost, as it was almost a whole day of fascinating and beautiful gardens, and all so perfectly and meticulously maintained. So, although I’m going out of order on our itinerary here, I thought I’d share these photos for Easter weekend, since they are so quintessentially Spring.
Slipping into some wooden shoes — Oak decides to try to walk. Not so easy!
Of course, we saw many windmills – most just when we were driving along the road, but Keukenhof had one you could even go up inside! It was pretty cool – stairs like a lighthouse inside, and then a deck on the top where you could look out.
It was a wonderful day, and as you can see great weather! We were all bundled up in the morning when we got there, which turned out to be completely unnecessary. Loved it!
