Keukenhof flower gardens opened with Polish theme

Filed under: Art,Music,Nature by Branko Collin @ 1:48 pm

Last Thursday the Keukenhof bulb gardens in Lisse (between Amsterdam and The Hague) opened its doors for its yearly exhibition.

This year’s theme is “Poland, Heart of Europe”, which is celebrated amongst others with a 50,000 flowering bulb portrait of composer Chopin.

The park will remain open until May 20, and expects to receive about 900,000 visitors.

If you would like to know what Keukenhof is about, Flickr is your friend. (Although that stream also shows photos of flower fields that have nothing to do with the Keukenhof.)

Little guerilla garden in Amsterdam

This prim little garden can be found at the Hygiea Square in Amsterdam. Guerilla garden is perhaps too strong a word for something so small and neat.
