Keukenhof Gardens - Part 2

After taking all these photos it was time for a break and a snack: Dutch pancakes, known as poffertjes, above.

Then I was off for more photography. The variety of tulips really amazed me; starting from colours themselves, to the combinations of colours - whether that was one strong almost-fluoro colour all over, a dull pastel, bleeding into each other like watercolours, streaks, speckles, rimmed petals etc. Then, the petals - round, stumpy, skinny and long, smooth edges, fringed petals, crinkled petals, thin and fat petals, one row vs an explosion of petals. Enjoy:

Rows and rows and rows of flowers...

An old windmill that stands on the grounds:

From the windmill I could look down onto a display of traditional Dutch dancing:

Some typographical treatments on 2 of the bridges that cross the little stream that runs through the Keukenhof Gardens:

Another pavilion, featuring orchids:

And finishing up with this pretty little flower:
