Dazzling - Even on a Dreary Day

On our recent trip we visited Keukenhof Gardens
The gardens exceeded my expectations. 
In fact, they were totally over the top!

We were two of the 848,984 spring visitors...


viewing some of the flowers from 7 million bulbs....


Some in massive plantings...


Others in whimsical displays...


The colors were astounding...


Whether viewed in masses....


or individually....


There were three huge indoor greenhouse displays....


with orchids...


and azaleas....


and so much more....


There were gardens featuring single colors...


and others showcasing stunning color combinations....


There were tulips of every shape...


and size....


and so many things...


to catch our eyes!
