If you saw my Double Denim post this week, you know I spent the past weekend in Holland.
My friend and I took a quick weekend trip over from Dublin to visit Keukenhof, known to many as the “Garden of Europe” for its annual flower display that runs from mid-March to mid-May.
Each year, the gardens house over 7 million flowers and it’s worth every breathtaking moment, even if flowers aren’t your thing! The fields are situated a hop, skip, and a jump from Amsterdam in the little town of Lisse.
Now, as I mentioned, if you want to see the tulips in full bloom, you better get out for a visit in mid-April before the warmer days make them drop their petals! The sites are absolutely amazing and these photos are only a tiny sample of what the 7 million bulbs have to offer!
I was lucky enough to wander into the Orchid exhibit and this year they found a way to incorporate fashion into the display! (For those of you who know my birthday theme, look closely at the mannequin.)
It’s a great place for a quick visit! You can get from Dublin to Amsterdam in no time, and if you are looking to take the trip on a budget, you can easily fly into Eindhoven and hire a car and both Keukenhof and Amsterdam are a quick 1.5 hour drive.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the glorious colour combos I’ve given you here. Have you booked your flight yet? Until next time, XOXO – K
