Within Keukenhof garden there is a small farm house. A good way to get children (and adults) familiar with the farm animals. The animals are very docile and don’t mind the kids petting them. In fact the zoo itself is called “petting zoo”
A glimpse of the Dutch Cheese over here - and you can buy them too.
Some artistic arrangements with the same theme. An used tyre from one of the farms as the flower pot.
We have a pair of clogs and it has found its place in our loft, but now after wifey sees this flower arrangement I know that pair is going to see the daylight (in our garden)
In fact its how you place the flowers and where you place them that makes the difference.
OK, as it is Keukenhof, it is time for you to see some flowers:
I like these tricycles placed at strategic places for the sale of the ice cream.
Landscaping is an art and I was fortunate enough to get some good photographs of them as I happened to be at this part of the garden in the evening which created those long shadows:
OK its time for some more flowers:
I grabbed a bite from the cafeteria and proceeded with the exploring. I should not call it a cafeteria as it was a full-fledged eating place, better than a high class restaurant.
At the entrance of Orange Nassau there is a huge Classified list and international register of Tulip names. I clicked this picture at an angle by which the names look tiny but the Indian Actress Aishwarya’s name is on the top line (its alphabetically listed)
Those who are interested in the history of the flower, there is the Historical Garden
For those who are not interested in smelling the flowers – a chess board to while away the time – king size.
Time for more flowers:
Tulipa 'Roze Leen'
Tulipa 'Yellow springgreen'
