We had a very exciting week in the Netherlands. We had the meet & greet last Friday! It was fun to talk to you all. We had the flower parade on Friday evening and Saturday during the day. More than 1.000.000 people visited this parade! And we went to two flower shows in Belgium. As you can see we are having a busy time!
After a lovely weekend waking up between the tulip fields at Landal Beach Resort Ooghduyne, (what a lovely place!) I am back home in preparation for a visit to Floralien in Gent (Belgium) and the flower parade this weekend.
The temperature is getting warmer every week! We had a couple of sunny days with lovely temperatures and some days with some rain. Perfect weather for springtime!

The area is getting ready for all the visitors in the next weeks. From the outside you can see that the bike rental is placed at the new parking lot at Keukenhof. And the bulb sellers are setting up their shops along the roads.
The past week the weather turned a bit colder than before. We have freezing temperatures at night and during the daytime we have sometimes some sunshine.
