I don’t know what I was expecting by entering Keukenhof. Maybe a couple of areas with some flowers. Maybe a glass building exhibiting specific kinds ouly found throughout Europe. But it was so much more.
As I entered I immediately saw the colors. It’s what drew me in. Orange, yellow, pink, I couldn’t take my eyes away. They reminded me of my grandmother.
My grandma used to grow flowers outside her house. A little garden not even the size of a queen size bed filled with flowers. I remember tulips were her favorite since they reminded her of Easter.
As soon as I started seeing the different colors, I raced as if they would dissapear. My camera turned into my eyes for the day. I just kept thinking of my grandma and her little garden.
So if I had to go again, I would. Sometimes you just have to stop and appreciate the little things. Even though my day was filled with looking at flowers; it was worth every minute. I’ll never forget my time at Keukenhof.
