Holland is known for its flowers. It produces around 62% of the world’s supply of flower bulbs, and its trading companies account for 85% of the international trade in flower bulbs — not only tulips, but hyacinths, daffodils, irises.

Our holiday home is in the middle of this colourful area, the sandy fields of Noordwijk, Hillegom, Lisse. Here some lovely photos of the last day of the Keukenhof gardens on Pentecost Monday, 16 May 2016.
