In spring one of the biggest attractions in the Netherlands is the Kuekenhoff Gardens at Lisse near Amsterdam. Every year seven million bulbs are planted and when they bloom there is a riot of colour and thousands of tourists. It takes a full day to wander around these magnificent gardens to admire an extraordinary range of flowers. Even in the rain one cannot but enjoy this amazing scene.
