"Would you like want to go to the Keukenhof this year?" My husband asks me. " Of course !" I replied.
It is about a two hour drive from our home to Keukenhof. (www.keukenhof.nl). After we arrived we walked straight to the Historic garden. That is my favourite spot at the Keukenhof. Sitting on the benches against the wall heated by the sun, you can observe the crowd passing through. All kinds of nationalities come by and they all take pictures of the same bed with red tulips in full bloom. This flowerbed looks like a red coloured roiling sea.

|I like the light green colour, but dislike the bright green one on the right.|
We rest a little on a special bench made of straw and listen to the chattering of Russian women who are sitting behind us. What are they talking about?
|Border with pink tulips, hyacinths and forget-me-not.|
|All hyacinths gets an iron stake.|

|I like this color combination very much.|
|Huge areas of blooming tulips in bright colours.|
|A drift of Muscari. Always beautiful.|
Once at home, I take a look in my own garden, which at that moment is glowing in the evening light.
A splinter of the Keukenhof!
