Weekly flower update – Week 14
Early tulips, crocus, daffodils and a start of hyacinths. That is the blooming status at the moment. Due to the cold and grey weather the flowers grow and bloom very slowly. Last night (and now still) we have had a big storm hopefully the flowers won’t fall over.
The indoor tulip show looks so lovely at the moment. One side is at peak blooming and the other side is starting to bloom so all visitors this week and at Easter weekend can see it too. I made a video, if you haven’t seen it please have a look here.
Outside more flowers are getting in bloom every day. There is a big difference with the first day of opening. However you can still see lots of green leaves. The indoor flower shows are making it worthwhile to go.
At the flower fields you can see the daffodils in full bloom and next to the yellow colors you can see some fields turning slightly into color. On bike distance of Keukenhof you can find some early tulip fields and a couple of hyacinth fields getting to bloom.
Forecast next week
The weather predictions are cold, wet and grey until next Saturday morning. Dry and sunny weather is expected for Easter weekend and warm weather in the week after Easter. Wear layers of clothes so you won’t get too cold during this week. Yes, I have seen the first tourists on flip-flops and in shorts already (it is around 5C/41F, I am still wearing a wintercoat).
I think we can see more flowers in the fields in bloom from Easter and for sure the week after Easter. We just need a couple of nice warm and sunny days to get the real explosion of colors. See the updates of previous seasons here.
Extra information for Easter
Easter weekend is next to parade weekend one of the busiest weekends of the spring season. Lots of tourist are visiting the area and lots of Dutch people are visiting Keukenhof too.
Keep in mind that between 10 AM – 3 PM the roads will be blocked by traffic jams. There are no short cuts to the Keukenhof, all roads will be full with cars, busses, taxi’s etc.
Arrive before 10 AM (by car and by bus) and make sure you buy your tickets online so you don’t have to wait in line. If you are planning to rent a bike, rent it in the morning. More tips for visiting at Easter weekend see this blogpost.
