What Does 7 Million Tulips Look Like?
Although the Keukenhof Gardens are well known, they never cease to amaze and delight tourists year after year. This is one of many tulips fields near Keukenhof Gardens. Each one of the 7 million tulips will be dug up and replaced with new bulbs for a new display next year. This year's theme is Poland 2012. A tribute to Pope John Paul II is part of the display at Keukenhof. Keukenhof means kitchen garden. It is recommended that travellers visit within the last 2 weeks of April for tulips in full bloom though there are displays of earlier blooming and later blooming flowers from early April through May in addition to the famed tulips. A must see.
