Weekly flower update – Week 16
The present status of the flower fields:
All the crocuses in the fields are gone now. The daffodils are at peak blooming however some fields are not in bloom yet. I photographed the daffodils last week an shot a short video of the blooming status. Have a look here.
The early tulips are in bloom and the regular tulips are about to bloom. Just a couple of days with these warm and sunny weather and we can see some fields turning from green into color.
And the hyacinths are in bloom as well. Numerous fields are dotted around the area. All the purple, white and pink colors are coming from these fields. I made a short video of them as well. Have a look here.
Some people let me know that they were a bit disappointed while visiting the fields. There are a lot of fields in bloom but they are slightly further away from the Keukenhof than previous years. I made a quick map for all of you visiting by car / renting a bike to see these fields in bloom. Be aware this is the present status, some fields might be done blooming when you visit them in the next weeks.
And for photos of the flower fields and my visits to Keukenhof please visit our photo album.
Present status at Keukenhof
The crocus are at peak blooming or just over peak blooming, the daffodils are in bloom, the early tulips are in bloom, the hyacinths are blooming and de regular tulips are still green. They need some extra sunshine and warmth this week.
The indoor tulip festival is at peak/over peak blooming. And make sure you visit the other flower shows too, they look wonderful.
Forecast next week
The weather predictions are very nice for the next week. The flowers will be growing faster and are going to bloom. I expect that around Flower Parade weekend (25th of april) the fields are at it’s best and the flowers at Keukenhof slightly later. It will be extremely busy during Parade weekend. Make sure you read all the information to have a lovely visit. (Or visit before or after the weekend)
Keukenhof is starting to look less green and more color. Around the bulb statue the tulips are in full bloom. And around the park you can see more tulips. The next weeks till the end of April the Keukenhof is getting more and more beautiful.
