Keukenhof Park

Before visiting this park, I read a lot about the amazing Keukenhof park in the Netherlands, which is open from mid-March to mid-May, that is, during the tulip bloom. Getting to the park is not difficult. By metro from Amsterdam and then by special bus, straight to the entrance to the park.

 


 From the first steps Keukenhof surprised me. More than 70 thousand bulbous plants were planted this year. The beautiful combinations of flowers, rhododendrons and trees are amazing. Tulips, daffodils, anemones, hyacinths, muscari, fritillaria (hazel grouse), etc. were rivers of flowers. Look at the combination of purple tulips and white daffodils.




The combination of tulips of different varieties is amazing. Many varieties of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and muscari are planted in flower arrangements.   

I liked the hyacinths in light and dark lilac on the main alley of Keukenhof Park. Yellow large daffodils completed the picture. Park designers show interesting ideas for combining different spring flowers. A river of blue muscari and yellow tulips is an amazing sight. 

 



I stopped near the pond to look at the swans. Pink and red tulips, white and yellow daffodils, and lilac hyacinths looked lovely. There are many small lakes, streams, and waterfalls in the park. Flowering plants look beautiful reflected in the water.  

 

 

The Netherlands is the main supplier of all bulbous plants in the world. Many visitors are eager to see the variety of spring flowers in Keukenhof Park. This park is famous not only for tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, but also for flowering trees and shrubs such as rhododendrons, apple trees, plums, and sakura. I hope you enjoyed this short excursion to Keukenhof Park, the Netherlands.  

Perhaps you have been there, what was your impression?
