Weekly flower update – Week 17
The present status of the flower fields:
The crocuses are gone, the hyacinths are almost done blooming, a lot of daffodils are done blooming (especially the early kind) and finally the regular tulips are in bloom.
Last week was nice and warm enough to turn the green fields into color. And this week will be the same weather wise.
You still need a bike or a car to drive around the fields. There are some fields visible from the windmill platform. If you want to see some more fields just rent a bike outside and drive one of the routes provided.
And for photos of the flower fields and my visits to Keukenhof please visit our photo album.
Present status at Keukenhof
As mentioned before Keukenhof looks gorgeous! Inside the crocus are almost gone, the the daffodils are in bloom, the hyacinths are blooming and de regular tulips are blooming too.
Every day I see new colors appearing around the Keukenhof. The famous blue river of muscari is almost in blue color. When you are visiting this week make sure you visit.
Last weekend the daffodil show was started with more than 100 different daffodils. I never knew there were that many! Even selected a couple of my favorites for my spring garden next year. And the orchids exhibition draws a lot of attention. I can walk hours around the garden seeing something new every time.
Forecast this week
The weather forecast is lovely until this Friday. At this point rain is expected over the weekend (the flower parade!) and for next week. The daffodils and the hyacinths are slowly going to stop blooming and the tulips are blooming for this week and probably also for the week after.
For people traveling in May. Make sure you visit as early as possible if you want to see the tulips in the fields. I expect the fields being headed around the first week of May. They won’t be headed all at the same time but the fields are turning into green very quick. See a short video about heading the tulips here.
On the left you see the new Nijntje or Miffy tulip. Just got her name last Sunday. For updates of previous seasons, have a look at our website.
