Keukenhof Gardens, Holland

I know I’ve already posted about our recent trip to Holland, but I simply had too many pictures of the beautiful Keukenhof Gardens that I couldn’t help but make a separate post for them all.  So here’s that post and here are those pictures. 🙂

First of all, Sam took some excellent photos using his favorite “camera toss” method. The rows of bright colors framed by the blue sky were perfect for this technique. Check these out:

Here are my pictures. And yes, I can assure you, it was actually more beautiful and bright in person than I was able to capture in my pictures. If you ever have the chance to go there this time of year, do it! 🙂

 The areas next to the pond were breathtaking!

 The patchwork tulip fields in the distance did not disappoint:

We went up in the windmill for a bird’s eye view. The man working the windmill was wearing wooden clogs!

I took many of these overhead photos… With thousands of tulip heads – of many different textures, shapes and colors – bobbing in the breeze, it was too beautiful to avoid!

I think that last one looks like a painting!

Even as we were leaving, and we had each snapped hundreds of pictures, I couldn’t help but take one more on the way out. It was early in the afternoon and the gardens were getting more crowded, yet we were still surrounded with so much beauty. God’s creation is certainly diverse and vibrant!
