The Keukenhof Gardens#2
Wine bottles in a unique flower arrangement
Part two of my visit to the Keukenhof Gardens, described as “the most beautiful spring garden in the world,” focuses on the indoor exhibitions.
The sculptural display of lilies and ferns displayed in wine bottles, was one of MANY unique ideas that my sister and I witnessed on our trip, so I make no apologies for including LOTS of inspiring photographs again this week!
I will continue with a pink themed slideshow from the Willem-Alexander Pavillion.
The Amaryllis were simply stunning. I aspire to creating a replica!
Many of the containers and stands were painted to enhance the beauty of the blooms.
Lilies were featured once again, in a series of gold frames against a black background. I could not choose a favourite…
Small tanks of water (located underneath), ensure they are never thirsty.
Friesian cows stole the show in this display!
A traditional Delft pottery boy and girl created a beautiful blue backdrop for these bicycles.
I so loved these paintings…
In the Beatrix Pavilion I fell in love with these hearts:
It would have been great to sit down.
And perhaps enjoy an armchair made from books!
The orchids were beautiful:
Moving onto the Oranje Nassau Pavillion, we were a little too late to witness a floristry demonstration, but these two displays pay testament to the standard of talent that filled the room:
Finally, it was time to say “goodbye” from a car heading to the beach, covered in recycled paint pots!
The Keukenhof Gardens exceeded all our expectations…
