We just came back from a wonderful trip to the Netherlands. I see you took your trip last year but I highly recommend The Keukenhof Gardens (http://www.keukenhof.nl/). They will only be open until May 20th of this year. If you are coming from Amsterdam to go to the gardens, I recommend that you get to Schiphol Airport. First buy the ticket from the tourist office then follow the signs and or ask where the bus to Keukenhof leaves from. The buses take approximately 25min and they leave every 10 – 15 min from the airport.
There are restaurants there as well as little carts that sell food, you can even take your own snacks! It is wonderful, peaceful and absolutely the most beautiful tulips we have ever seen. Bonus is that you can climb up into a windmill. The park is huge, it really takes a full day!
Well worth it!

He told me this on the night we met and the friends I was with all said to me, “Aaw Kell, all the Dutch boys will tell you they are tulip farmers!”. Needless to say, it was true, and I was quite devastated to visit the farm for the first time and see the poor headless tulips! Your photos are wonderful! What a fabulous experience you are giving your children!

I’m planning to go to Holland next year, for some reason I can only go in mid-May. I would really love to see those tulip fields (not garden like the Keukenhof) but real tulip fields. I would really appreciate if you let me know the actual date you visited those fields and where in Holland can I find any still in bloom in mid May? Do you think it is still possible for me to see tulip field on May 11?

You could perhaps take some bulbs home.

I love them too. (Although daffodils steal me heart.) Then it’s just keeping the deer and ground squirrels from stealing them!

So glad you at least got to see a few fields. They are such a short time bloomer!

Takes me back to my childhood helping my Uncle Cor pick heads off daffodils in his fields in Noordwijkerhout. My Mum’s Dad was Dutch and I’m named after the bulb-farming town of Lisse! (My parents changed the spelling to avoid confusion and created lots!). Thank you, Lissa

In San Diego we have the flower fields, which I missed out on this year. Same thing — they don’t care about the flowers, they are in it for the bulbs. It is 50 acres of rununculas (totally spelling that wrong) and absolutely gorgeous.

I think seeing the flowers in Holland is on my wish list!
