Cookie at the Keukenhof ~ part 1

As you may know me bestie Berry is a writer slash blogger slash reporter (hey, me learned all me reporting skills from her, cuz she also a writing coach). For her blog she gets invited to all kinds of exciting events. So… at the first day of Spring – March 21 – she took me to Keukenhof in Lisse for the pre-opening of the well… new season of the Keukenhof. And it was soooo cool! Me saw so many flowers and even Nijntje lives there! Me was also very happy me no did had to walk...

For who not know what Keukenhof is me will explain. Keukenhof is a large estate with a very large garden. It very very large and huge. And there are all these spring flowers to enjoy for only 8 weeks. There were daffodils, crocuses in all different colours and… TULIPS. As far as me googly eyes could see in all shapes, sizes and colours. Especially at the Willem-Alexander Pavillion. Berry called it Tulip Heaven. And me totally agree.

During the opening there were loads of festivities. These sweet ladies even framed me as a piece of art! You must know the theme of the flower park this year is Dutch Design, because the art style of the Dutch artists Mondriaan and Rietveld called ‘De Stijl’ is celebrating a birthday this year. Cool huh.

Me really loved it at Keukenhof! So many pretty flowers! The park is really beautiful and popular. Many tourists from all over the world come to see the flowers in bloom. Too bad it will close again after May 21st. The best thing is, Berry went again and we will be going again too very soon! Me loves it. So me gonna tell you more about the park soon too hihi. So bye bye for now and me will tell you soon about me second adventure at Keukenhof!

Dutchies or people who can read Dutch, you can find Berry her blog about the opening of Keukenhof on her website: Keukenhof 2017: genieten van Dutch Design & bloemenpracht

Hi Cookie!

What a great place to visit. Why are they closing after May? Forever closed? or just for remainder of year?

Hi Hope
It only open for 8 weeks per year. After that the flowers are all done blossoming and the park closes until next year!
