Weekly flower update – Week 13
Last week I was in search of crocus and now there are in bloom just outside Keukenhof. When you travel by public transportation the last roundabout before you enter Keukenhof you will see a two beautiful stripes in white and purple (on the left side of the bus). And the field next to the windmill has turned yellow by the daffodils. Beautiful sight from the platform of the windmill.
At the Keukenhof you can still find a lot of green leaves of the flowers. But the Keukenhof gets more and more color every day. I can see much difference between the first day of opening and the blooming today. The crocus inside Keukenhof are in bloom and the daffodils bloom at some places. Near the bulb statue and at some places around the park you can find very small red tulips. (see photo above) These are the very early tulips. On Twitter a photographer shared with me that there is one early red tulip field in bloom. It is the same tulip as in Keukenhof. Don’t worry the normal tulips will bloom a bit later.
For tulip lovers the indoor tulip festivals are a lovely sight to see. The Oranje Nassau pavilion is full with all kinds of tulips in a Vincent van Gogh decor. And at the Willem Alexander pavilion more than 600 different varieties are in bloom.
Forecast for next week
The weather changes quickly from warm and sunny to freezing cold and grey. I expect to see more daffodil fields in bloom. And maybe we can find one or two hyacinth fields in bloom.
At this point we are still expecting a regular springtime this year with tulips blooming in the fields from the 2nd/3rd week of April. For updates of last seasons have a look at our website.
