Keukenhof (Post #1) Lisse, The Netherlands

Keukenhof is one of the world’s largest flower gardens. They plant around 7 million flower bulbs per year! We came for the tulips, but this place turned out to be so much more. There was so much to see here that I’ll have to break it up into 3 blog posts…
