Keukenhof - for Spring

Hailed as the prettiest spring gardens in the world, we decided it was time to have a look at Keukenhof ourselves this past weekend. The weather was sunny and clear, though perhaps not as warm as we would have liked (though 14°C isn't all that bad for the Netherlands in April to be honest), but all in all, a perfect day to spend outdoors.

I'm tempted to return because I think we were slightly early. The flower fields surrounding the gardens weren't quite in bloom, and cycling through them is a lovely ride. But despite our potentially early arrival in the season, the gardens are most decidedly not to be missed!

I could go on and on about it, I think the photos speak for themselves.
