Welcome to the final newsletter of spring 2022. Spring is almost over. Let’s take a look what there is still to see in its final week what is happening ….
Current status of the flowers
Final week of spring is already here. Most of the tulip fields have been headed and Keukenhof will closed its doors on Sunday the 15th of May. Lots of tulips are still in bloom but you can see that the end of spring is near. Due to the warm temperatures and the lack of rain this season blooming was a bit different than in previous years.
Are you visiting after May 15th there might be some tulips left to see at the Tulip Experience Amsterdamthat is closing on the 22nd of May.
Interesting activities for the upcoming week
It may be the end of the spring flower season, we are on our way to summer.
