Exploring the Netherlands: Keukenhof

Last week we ventured off on a little road trip to the Keukenhof. This majestic garden features the most glorious flowers ever. Seriously. In every color of the rainbow, the garden showcased flowers ranging from tulips to lilies to narcissus and even somehow managed to make carnations seem alluring. 

I live in the Northern part of Holland so it was about a 2 and a half hour drive to Lisse all along the way we past fields and fields of colorful tulips in rows as far as the eye can see. I had seen these images featured on postcards but to see it in person was truly something.

We stayed the night on the North Sea (about 15 miles from Lisse) at a beautiful old Hotel- Hotel van Oranje. It was truly a charming little getaway!

If only my home garden was this fabulous!
