The Keukenhof Gardens has been very high on my list of places to visit for a long time. Especially after almost a year in grey/brown (colorless) Iraq, the amazing colors were quite the feast for the eyes! We chose a chilly day to go, and I wish we could have gone back 2-3 weeks later, but it was still amazing.

Here are Ian and Leah in front of one of the many plots of flowers. Despite the chill, they had a pretty good time. Between the water, the swans, and the glass maze, there was lots there to interest Ian and Leah.

A quick shot of Leah during one of our break stops, this one at a cafe.

Below is one of my favorite photos from the bunches of photos I took. I have some post-processing plans for this one, but the "river" of blue flowers in contrast to the green and splash of yellow was pretty amazing.

Here are Catherine and the kids enjoying a bench by some water. Just a couple of minutes later a swan or two swam by which really captivated the kids.

The blue flowers really look like a river! I don't think I've seen so many blue flowers at once. Very very pretty.
