Current status of the flowers – 11 april 2017
Last weekend when I drove to Keukenhof early in the morning, this flower field took my breath away. All the tulips and all the color look so wonderful together. We are heading for an early spring time this season. We had beautiful warm and summer like temperatures last weekend so the tulips in the field and at Keukenhof bloom beautifully. Have a look here to see some photos of my visit last couple of days.
This means that the people visiting in the next couple of weeks are in for a colorful blooming experience. Don’t worry for the people traveling later on in season. Keukenhof is using the lasagna planting system that causes a longer blooming time, but for the people traveling towards the end of spring make sure you read the newsletter a week before you are traveling to see what is in bloom. It all depends on the weather and temperature in the upcoming weeks.
When you are traveling during Easter weekend make sure you arrive early. Last Sunday the whole area was congested with cars waiting in a big traffic jam to get to Keukenhof. When you arrive before 9 AM you will have a much easier access than traveling between 10 AM and 3 PM. The temperatures are going down again (good for the flowers!) so bring layers in clothing and you might need some rain gear this weekend too.
