That was David's reaction upon turning a corner in the Keukenhof Gardens (Holland) last week and finding yet another stunning display of colourful bulbs stretching into the distance.
The Spring Gardens are wonderful but the sheer scale of the place is slightly overwhelming and although we both love pretty spring flowers we were getting bored after 2 hours. Photos really don't do justice to the gardens (or the bulb fields surrounding the gardens). We decided that the best way to view this spectacle would be from the air - it would be an amazing sight from small plane or helicopter (perhaps there's an idea for a business there)?
Unfortunately we weren't able to see some of the indoor displays as they were being rebuilt.
The Gardens only open for 8 weeks each year and so get absolutely packed with visitors from around the world. Too many people for my liking I'm afraid!
Here are a few pictures which give an idea:
You can see from this photo just how crowded some of the walkways were ... not my idea of fun really
I tried to get some close up photos - just in case I get the urge to try my hand at a 'still life' :-)
Now by this stage I guess you'll all be in total sympathy with David and groaning ... not another bl**dy etc etc .. so I'll call a halt here - but there may be more tomorrow :-)
