Photography taken during my visit to The Netherlands, 24/03/16. The Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse is one of the largest flower gardens of Europe, with over seven million flower bulbs planted there each year.
Our visit was on the opening day of the 2016 season, and thus the tulip fields were not in full bloom. Still, the indoor exhibits were fascinatingly beautiful, especially the Orchid area. I had to drag myself away from buyign one of the most grogeous blue orchid plants which were flying off the shelves from other visitors. If you are coming to Amsterdam in the Spring (March-June), consider spending an afternoon away from the city, admiring nature in this gem of a place.
