Flowers, flowers and more beautiful flowers

The Netherlands, among many other things, is famous for its blossoming (no pun intended) flower industry. Each year the Dutch export millions of flowers around the world and have even become pioneers in creating innovative, sustainable and eco-friendly green house facilities.

If you are lucky enough to visit Holland in the spring, a must see destination is the beautiful Keukenhof. The Keukenhof is a park located about 30 minutes outside Amsterdam filled with over seven million kinds of flowers. The park is only open from mid March until Mid May so during this period on any given day it is likely to be filled with crowds and crowds of  flower lovers from around the globe.

Last weekend Sebastiaan and I went to the Keukenhof with two friends. We took a long walk through the park, visited a few green houses and stopped to check out a local art exhibit. It was an absolutely perfect way to welcome the long-awaited spring season. 🙂
