BIM in Europe - Keukenhof - Tulips!

When you think about Holland, you will think about tulips. But do you know that it's actually imported from the middle east, more specifically, Turkey or back in those days, the Ottomon Empire in the 16th century. Well, we decided to check out Keukenhof, world second largest flower garden.

7 million bulbs are planted annually, what mind boggling stats
Walking through the tulips...
In the mid-17th century, tulips were so popular that they created the first economic bubble, known as "Tulip Mania" (tulipomania). 
Red tulips happy in a row, just like us!
Maybe mummy likes it yellow...
And daddy with a hint of red...
Or red and yellow separately...
Can you spot the yellow Asian tulip? :)
BIM - the pink tulip!
I'm marching through the 79 acres big tulip garden
Daddy the fountain man?
Clog, windmill and pram. Which is the odd one?
I can see my reflection!
How pretty!
What an exhausting day! 
Definitely lots of walking for the day but I can't wait what else the next day brings!
