Keukenhof is the world’s largest flower garden. Located in Lisse, Netherlands, it means “kitchen garden” in Dutch and is also known as the garden of Europe. This 32 hectare garden with more than 7 million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths offers a rainbow that can be touched. Here I present a photo essay of the world’s most beautiful spring garden.

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels!

Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?

 

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast,
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest!

Dew on the petals of those tulips whispered in my ears, enjoy every moment to your fullest since life is nothing but a waft of breath.

Sometimes spring comes like a train; it takes me afar. Sometimes spring comes to me like a destination, where I can rest. This spring gifted me rest. Adieu Keukenhof, until next time!
