Keukenhof Gardens - 8 April 2007

The main reason we choose Amsterdam in April was to visit the Keukenhof Gardens: the best spring bulb garden in the world. However, after paying €13 each to get in, the miserable toads charge €0.30 to use the toilets. How mean can you possibly get?

Nevertheless, the day was brilliant,

and we spent several very enjoyable hours

wandering around the gardens.

It was a wonderful way

to spend Easter Sunday,

enjoying the symbolism of the 'dead' bulbs

becoming new life

with their beautiful blooms.

The gardens are so beautiful, I can see why they were the major attraction, but everything else was amazing too - you must have had a very action packed Easter, us youngies have a lot to learn!
