The World's Most Beautiful Spring Garden
I was in cloud nine when I stepped into the Keukenhof park, the world's most beautiful spring garden. The excitement is beyond explanation for being able to witness the tulip's blooms from its country of origin, the Netherlands and sailed through the tulips farms.

32 hectares wide Keukenhof park only opens for public in Spring for a mere 8 weeks (21-Mar till 20-May). That's why the garden is practically overrun by tourists from all over the world during these time of the year.


The tulips in the garden are yet to be in full bloom and the pictorial flower scenes are yet to be seen from the commercial farms surrounding Keukenhof. This may due to the rather cold and long winter  experience this year. Perhaps May may be the ideal month to experience the outdoor gardens.

The flowers in indoor pavilions on the other hand are in full bloom. Thousand of colorful tulips, daffodils and hyacinths were vying for attention in the pavilions. What a amazing and memorable scene!

There is a special Rose exhibition show during my visit. Thousand of roses, from over a dozen varieties were on show. The highlight of the show is none other than Mr. Bean's very own green mini decorated in roses. The rose exhibition is available at Oranje Nassau Pavilion.

There is also a little animal farm next to the Oranje Nassau Pavillion which prove to be great fun for children. Farm animals and poultry are running freely in the area and visitors are allowed to touch the animals except the piglets. There are warning signs mentioning the piglets may bite :)

Spring flower bulbs are also sold in the park. Please do not mistaken these as onions. There are actually real flower bulbs that you can plant in your own garden.
