Dutch specialty

Dutch specialty

If you are in the Netherlands during spring the tulip fields are a must see! You can either treat yourself to some fancy gardens, aka The Keukenhof, or you can hop in a car and go explore for yourself. My family and I opted for the second option, and it did not disappoint! We found a few different fields that were open and the farmers didn’t mind you coming in to take pictures. It is really incredible to see the tulips all perfect in lineups according to their colours. It is such a magical view. Even just seeing it from the road is beautiful, but it is much better to get up close and personal. My favourite type of tulips are the parrot tulips, they have a fusion of colour on them, rather than just solid colour. I would highly recommend purchasing some parrot tulips, they are really special. The Dutch have really mastered the art of tulip planting, try to catch the growing season if you are making a trip to the Netherlands!
