I went there actually a few days ago when I was still on the river boat. Our guides had been preparing us for not seeing much because it has been a very cold spring and the bulbs are many weeks behind in blooming. Actually, there were not as many open fields in bloom but inside the pavilions, there were hundreds of the most beautiful tulips I have ever seen. I was there for six hours (the last of our boat group to leave). 

Days have been very busy. My usual wakeup call is for 630 am. I am getting a little tired now so may skip some planned places in the next few days before I go to Switzerland. 

Keukenhof was started as an exhibition garden for the Dutch bulb growers. I want to send some pictures now while I have free (but slow) internet. I am off the boat and now in a great high rise hotel (thank you Priceline) on thee 18th floor overlooking the Amsterdam harbor. I will be here for 3 days. 

I am now going to try to download flower pictures. Hopefully, they go through. Colors are beyond description..
