For the Love of Tulips

Spring time is here, and flowers are in bloom. If you love flowers as much as we do, this is the perfect time of year. Local Bluebonnets and wildflowers have been blooming. You can see those just driving down the local roads.  

This time of year is especially great for Tulip lovers. Tulips are in full bloom! The ultimate tulip lover’s vacation is a trip to Holland in the Spring time. Tulips can be seen in numerous locations throughout the country.

Starting in March and ending in May, the Keukenhof Tulip and Flower Gardens are open. This garden is the world’s largest flower garden and is only open for two months a year.  In addition to tulips, the garden has a variety of bulb flowers including beautiful daffodils. The gardens are an easy day trip from most major cities in Holland, including Amsterdam.

People can also plan a countryside tour of tulips fields. There is a route beginning in Haarlem, which is about ½ hour outside of Amsterdam, and ending in the village of Naaldwick. This tour will take you through the countryside as you see fields of tulips, daffodils, lilies, irises and more. Along this route you can stop at the Keukenhof Gardens and/or Leiden Botanical Gardens.

For those wanting to stay closer to home, there is a great option for local flower lovers. A trip to the Dallas Arboretum is great any time of year, but especially in the Spring time. Dallas Blooms is wrapping up this weekend, and it is called one of the South’s Best Botanical Gardens by Southern Living Magazine.

No matter what time of year, it is always a pleasure to enjoy the beauty of flowers. Whether making a trip of it or just buying a beautiful arrangement for your home, flowers are a joy for the senses.
