In case you haven’t heard of them, Keukenhof (or commonly referred to as the ‘Garden of Europe’) is one of the world’s great flower gardens. In short, the gardens are renowned for their spectacular tulip displays which draw thousands of visitors in Spring each year. Given present circumstances, that’s not an option unfortunately but the gardens have kindly put together a stunning virtual tour for us all to bask in this year’s majestic display.
The sea of fresh tulip flowers is truly astounding. What’s more, in amongst these delectable blooms, look for an array of daffodils, lilies, roses, carnations, and irises. Floral meditation at its finest.
Due to the malefic Coronavirus, this gorgeous park was closed this year in March, April and May – a period of time in which the most amazing, beautifully colored flowers are blooming all around. Since its opening in 1950, visitors from all over the world- for 8 weeks, actually – had been most welcome to come and enjoy, to take photos, to smell the enchanting parfumes . Not this year.
One single photographer, the Dutch landscape photographer, Albert Dros, was granted a special voucher/permission to go in and immortalize the floral splendor in his pictures. Good for him!
I found an interesting video on youtube that gives you an idea….which premiered in May 2020. Take your time and enjoy!
