Remember how I yesterday I promised you lots of pictures of tulips? Well, here they come.
Kuekenhof Gardens is an easy day trip, taking the train from Amsterdam Centraal station to Schiphol airport where a fleet of buses whisk visitors away to the tulip wonderland (about an hour travel time).
This is not the place to come if you want to commune with nature (unless your idea of nature is man-made and very crowded) but is a great place to indulge in extravagant displays of gorgeous spring flowers and who would say no to that?
There are all kinds of spring bloomers here, not just tulips. Hyacinths, daffodils, fritterlaria, anemones, crocus, grape hyacinths as well as forsythia, crab apples and azaleas. It is a spring garden lovers paradise.
Guess what? Now I’m beat – all that walking and biking and fresh air! And I’ve got a busy day planned for tomorrow for my last day in Amsterdam. Time to head for bed!
