We’ve had a warm spell here in the Northeast and tiny green shoots are finally beginning to see the light of day. Early spring brings to mind blooming bulbs and the opening of Keukenhof, the largest flower garden in the world. This gorgeous park near Lisse, Netherlands, is home to over 7,000,000 (yes, seven million!) bulbs ranging from crocus and hyacinths to narcissus and of course, tulips.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the international flower exhibition and the theme is “USA, New Amsterdam: New York, 400″, celebrating the bonds of friendship between our two countries as well as the exploits of Dutch discoverer Henry Hudson.
From a representation of the Hudson River and the borough of Manhattan, to pictures of American icons like the Statue of Liberty and Hollywood, we know that the show will be an unforgettable experience. We’re just sorry we can’t be there ourselves (sniff!)
