Last year I had the opportunity to visit Keukenhof in the Netherlands. It had been on my "bucket" list for a long time, but there was never an opportunity to travel to see the tulips while I was teaching. The gardens are extraordinary, with fields and fields of research tulips nearby. I spend three hours photographing as many tulips as possible and fortunately had a sunny day to do it.
My florist grandfather was Dutch and my family has been in the florist family since the 1800's. So, of course I had to go see the tulips!
Here is a tulip montage I made last week.
