Keukenhof Sunshine Weekend

the girls in bloom

Back in April, Emma's friends popped over for their annual Sunshine weekend and they certainly got lucky with the sun. We visited the famous Keukenhof flower park which is apparently the most photographed place in the world. Judging by the number of photos I took, I can see why!

Plus a bit of B/W photoshopping:

But I soon was over-flowered and started looking for people inspiration and there's hundreds of them there like below:

My mum would've loved it just like these below. Scorching hot weather and still in rain coats - just in case!

The girls enjoyed their time:

There was some map confusion below:

where shall we go next?

But we eventually found the worlds largest (plastic) tulip:
