Tulips from Amsterdam

Tulips in Amsterdam – the classic jolly song that became such a favourite when I was a child had always influenced me and led to my love of this lovely spring bulb in all its diversity and glory. 

To be invited on a press trip to Holland to enjoy the amazing Keukenhof Gardens, Amsterdam and Haarlem was an immense pleasure for me.  I wrote of it for Platform 505 and now of course the spring is over and the garden is dug over…. until the next time when Keukenhof will flower anew with a different set of bulbs and colour schemes. 

I really do recommend a visit to Holland in the springtime and the City of Amsterdam makes one very welcome too.  Heritage, Art, Culture, Flowers, Bulbs and good cuisine….and cycling…that is Holland!
