Now don't get me wrong - I do like flowers, but 7 million of them in one garden, might be considered a little OTT?
Gill and Jenny, being gardeners, were keen to see Keukenhof, which has a rather stunning display for around eight weeks in the spring. The flower beds are quite a sight, but it is worth looking up too as many of the trees make equally good displays. Blippers can also engage in camera spotting :-)
We arrived early(ish) to allow time for Gill and I to drive to the airport for our flight home, but by 16:00 the car park was emptying out and given the opening times and the later light, I would go mid afternoon if visiting again. Be prepared for the crowds, if like me, you are not overly keen on that sort of thing (see extra).
