Flowers, so many flowers!

Last spring I had the chance to visit the magical place that is known as the Garden of Europe, that is home to more than seven million tulips, with over 79 acres of bright colors and fragrance, one of the world’s largest flower gardens: the beautiful Keukenhof garden, situated in Lisse, Netherlands.

It really is an endless, peaceful, colorful sea of all kinds of flowers, surrounded by canals, a playground, a fun little maze, a windmill and restaurants. We got there early in the morning and spent the day walking around, taking in the atmosphere. It’s a stunning, calming place and it was a perfect day for walking around. We had lunch at one of the restaurants where the food was really good and surprisingly, not too expensive! The garden is open for just two months each spring, so if feels like a little treasure (one that you share with a bunch of other tourists, but isn’t it like that everywhere these days?). I can’t believe it’s almost been a year! Time does fly by…

So here are few pictures out of the thousands I took, if you’d like to see πŸ™‚
