Tulip Fields in Holland

After Normandy we decided to take a spur of the moment trip to Belgium and The Netherlands so that we could see the Tulip fields. Amsterdam is only a five hour drive from Paris, so it was an easy and quick trip. When we decided to move to Paris I made a list of “bucket list” of things I wanted to do while we were here. And seeing the tulip fields in Holland was near the top of the list. Our schedules have been busy during the small window that the tulips are in bloom so we thought we were going to have to miss them. I’m so happy we made it happen. The colors were so vibrant and it was one of my favorite days of this whole trip.

Have you ever seen the tulip fields in real life? It is crazy how colors that bright come from nature, they almost seem fake.


















Sorry there are so many photos. It was hard to edit them down.

    Oh my, that's stunning! I can't believe that you're able to walk right into the rows of tulips.

    Breathtaking… love it when places exceed already high expectations. You'll probably never look at a tulip the same way again.

    So beautiful. I love your photographs – I can see why ot was hard to edit them, the colours are fantastic.

    On an un-tulip related note, I do like your skirt – it looks perfect.

    It looks like you were up in my neck of the woods…and you chose the perfect time to come: another week and they might have been a bit past their peak! Wonderful pictures!

    One of my cousins (also a painter) just moved to the Netherlands and scored seasonal work in the tulip fields. I told her I want her to start painting them, asap! So beautiful.

    LOVE it! I wonder- do they grow them just for the sale of the bulbs? It appears obviously not to sell as blooming plants or else they would "harvest" before they bloom. Curious minds want to know.

    I agree with Sarah: There are never enough photos of tuplips! In fact, my desktop background is a picture of tulip fields that you posted way back when. It's jus tperfect for spring! I'm jealous you got to see the real thing – I had no idea you could visit them. Neato!

    Yes I absolutely loved visiting the tulip fields when we lived in Amsterdam. Keukenhof is a magical place, not to mention the most photographed place in the world! It's easy to see why, isn't it? Glad you made it there, since the fields are blooming for such a short window of time. Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    Gorgeous!
    I have been to the tulip fields outside of Seattle and they're pretty dreamy too. Totally worth checking out if you're in the NW.
