Tulips from Amsterdam
Tulips in Amsterdam – the classic jolly song that became such a favourite when I was a child had always influenced me and led to my love of this lovely spring bulb in all its diversity and glory.
To be invited on a press trip to Holland to enjoy the amazing Keukenhof Gardens, Amsterdam and Haarlem was an immense pleasure for me. I wrote of it for Platform 505 and now of course the spring is over and the garden is dug over…. until the next time when Keukenhof will flower anew with a different set of bulbs and colour schemes.
I really do recommend a visit to Holland in the springtime and the City of Amsterdam makes one very welcome too. Heritage, Art, Culture, Flowers, Bulbs and good cuisine….and cycling…that is Holland!
