A Tulip, of course!
We saw many, many, many tulips last week at Keukenhof Garden in Lisse, Netherlands. I highly recommend the destination; however, don’t take a bus trip and don’t go on a Saturday.
Keukenhof is a beautiful botanical garden that is open only 2 months out of the year, when bulbs have emerged from their winter slumber. We enjoyed perfect sunny weather. Because we were on a bus tour, our time in the Garden was quite limited. Because it was a sunny Saturday, it was incredibly crowded.
All around the garden are fields of flowers.
This was not a trip that the whole family was enthusiastic about, but there was plenty to do besides look at tulips.
How often do you get to wear giant wooden shoes?
Or meet a world famous rabbit?
Or play on a playground? (Actually, that happens just about daily but it is still fun.)
Or see a really cool bridge?
Or check out some water fountains?
We took lots of photos and tried not to get in the way of the thousands of other people taking photos. It was not easy.
And though they might not admit it, I think the boys had a good time.
I absolutely loved Keukenhof! This was one of my favorite experiences in Europe so far. I’m already planning to come back next year – by myself, in a car, on a weekday.
